Fodor's Review

Though not necessarily bigger or taller than the other falls along the Hana Highway, these are the most dramatic—some say the best—falls you'll find in East Maui. That's partly because the water is not diverted for sugar irrigation. The taro farmers in Wailua need all the runoff. To access the falls, park a half mile beyond mile marker 19, and follow the trail on the Hana side of the bridge to the 70-foot waterfalls. This is a particularly good spot for photos.
