Road to Hana
Haleakala National Park (Kipahulu)
About seven miles down the road from Hamoa Beach you’ll see the National Park on your left.
Here you’ll be able to see the famous Seven Sacred Pools (Pools of O’heo), and if you have enough time until sunset you can do the Pipiwai trail through the bamboo forest to the 400 foot Waimoku Falls.
We recommended not doing the other waterfall hikes to save time for this one because this one is definitely worth your time.
If you want there is first come first serve camping here as well. Be prepared for the $25 entrance fee.
At this time of day the sun will be going down, the stops will speak for themselves as you pass the beautiful cliff sides and rolling hills against Haleakala on the remaining south portion of the Hana Loop.
You also pass Palapala Ho’omau Church on your left where Charles Lindbergh’s grave is and Huialoha Church that has a great view of a beautiful cove on the hillside.
If you really made good time you’ll have enough time to stop by Maui Wine towards the end of the south loop at mile marker #15.
That wraps up the Hana Loop stops, enjoy the Upcountry views on your drive back to your Hotel.
