Palikea Stream
State Highway 330
Hana, Maui, Hawaii
Voice: 808-587-0109

Palikea Stream can be reached by taking the road to Hana then around to Kipahulu Visitors Center. The stream is part of a very long water way coming down from the mountains of Maui. Since the island gets a great deal of rain the never ending water flows down from 10,000 feet and creating amazing pools and waterfalls for the willing to walk up the 2 mile trail. At the end of the short trail is a 400 foot waterfall, if you don't want to walk all the way up to Waimoku Falls, you can stop at Makahiku Falls and check out the 200 foot waterfall.

If you are more adventurous you can take the 2 to 3 day hike up to the top of the mountain. That trail will take you all the way up to the rim of the Haleakala volcano. The stream will take you all the way up and you will see many pools and waterfalls.

For the average person they will only want to take the 2 mile hike up to the two beautiful falls. The trail can be very dangerous and is very close to a shear cliff on several occasions. There are signs telling you to stay back and that deaths have occurred. If you visit here we recommend you pay attention to the signs so you can go home and tell your friends and family about your trip.

Make sure you take the short hike down to the ocean and then up the pools. It is a beautiful area and well worth the trip. If the rain has been heavy, as it was in our case, you will not be allowed to go to the pools. The rangers monitor the water level very close to keep people safe. No one wants to be swept down the stream and out into the surf. The rocks and the sharks would not be a welcomed sight.
