A travel journal
to Maui by Foxboro Marmot
Quote: Get off the beaten track with this 20 minute hike to two waterfalls. Serious hikers will find this ridiculously easy and insignificant while the halt, lame and infirm will find this brutally impossible. If you're in the middle, trust me, it'll be fun.
Anyhow, the absolute BEST thing to do on the trip to Hana is to stop and explore a bit. I recommend taking a walk up to Twin Falls. It's easy to find, only two miles beyond where Route 36 becomes Route 360, the weather will almost always be better than further down the road, and there's no signs of water contamination. Some of the other streams further along have signs saying the water is contaminated. I understand that the source is supposedly wild pigs living on upstream, but I often wonder if these signs are more effective at keeping people out than the traditional No Trespassing sign would be.
THIRD best thing to do on the trip to Hana is to stop at Paia Shave Ice and get a shave ice. There a whole journal entry I need to do on shave ice, but that'll have to come later.

Take the ride and when you get bored or annoyed, turn around.
