With more than 10 years of experience as a professional writer, Megan holds a degree in Mass Media from her home state of Minnesota. After college, she chose to trade in her winter boots for slippahs and moved to the beautiful island of Oahu, where she has been living for more than five years. She lives on the west side but is constantly taking mini-road trips across the island and visits the neighboring islands whenever she can getaway. She loves hiking, snorkeling, locally-grown coffee, and finding the best acai bowl on Oahu.
Everyone knows that Maui’s Road to Hana is one of the most breathtaking drives in the state – but did you know that the iconic highway features several different waterfalls as well, making it the perfect setting for the ultimate Maui waterfall road trip.
We started at Waimoku Falls and Makahiku Falls along the four-mile round trip Pipiwai Trail, as it’s always best to hike first thing in the morning. If you aren’t up for the hike, you can simply start your waterfall road trip at the Oheo Gulch, or start the waterfall from the north side.
Even with the four-mile hike, this journey to the island’s greatest waterfalls can easily be completed in one day. This magnificent waterfall road trip will take you to nine different waterfalls, in just 44 miles and approximately two hours of drive time – without stops, of course.
Hawaii’s waterfalls are truly second to none, and offer quite the backdrop for a relaxing, or romantic, road trip. What are you waiting for? Please note that many of these waterfalls do not come with an exact address, though they are clearly marked on the Google Map we created, which you can view here.
