The combination of mountains and high rainfall found on the Road to Hana in eastern Maui have combined to provide a large number of waterfalls which can be viewed just short distances from your car.

The Lower Puohokamoa Falls can be seen from a lookout accessed by a trail off of a pulloff just past Milepost #11. It is a distant view, but a gorgeous one with red-flowering African Tulip Trees mixed into the forest around it.

A bit farther on is a brdge where a short trail leads to the Upper Puohokamoa Falls which can be seasonal in its flow.

One of my favorites is the Hanawi Falls, with multiple flows and large ferns overhanging it. It is right beside the road just past Milepost #24.
