Twin Falls: A Safe and Easy Way to See a Waterfall

January 25, 2023

Twin Falls is a popular hiking destination located here on Maui.

Like Kihei Rent A Car, it is privately owned and operated.

Twin Falls is not a state park nor does it receive any government funding.

The falls are situated in a lush, tropical rainforest and are made up of two separate cascading waterfalls. The first waterfall, which is the larger of the two, is around 80 feet tall and is a popular spot for swimming and picnicking. The second waterfall, which is smaller, is around 40 feet tall and is often used as a backdrop for photography.

The hike to Twin Falls is considered a moderately challenging route, with a well-maintained trail that winds through the rainforest. It’s only 2.6 miles out and back on a soft path through mossy trees and ferns. It takes an average of 53 min to complete. Along the way, hikers can enjoy the beautiful scenery, including lush vegetation and a variety of native plants and birds.

It is best to visit Twin Falls early in the morning or later in the afternoon to avoid the crowds and the heat of the day. The trail can be slippery after rain, so be sure to wear appropriate footwear.

TIP: The no parking along Hana Highway is enforced all along the road to Hana. This is a relatively new rule so it’s being enforced regularly. Get on the road super early so you can be one of the 55 to get a parking spot at Twin Falls. The parking lot is also not as full in the late afternoon. Don’t leave any valuables in your cars. Break ins are known to occur.
