About
Take a hike up to Twin Falls on the island of Maui as you immerse yourself in Hawaiian nature along the way. Be sure to bring your swimming gear, so you can take a dip in the cool natural pools when you arrive. The area is owned and operated by the local Wailele Farm, who have done a great job of preserving surrounding areas and rainforests. You can also get a refreshing pineapple juice or homemade cake at the Twin Falls Farm Stand near the entrance. The farm also conducts tours for a behind-the-scenes look of the farm and falls. – Tripadvisor

    Patience will get you there
    VERY IMPORTANT! The trail is on private land, pay $10 to park, 50 slots and they fill up quickly. If the lot is full, you can wait in your car off the side of the road, but you CANNOT park off the road, do drop off or walk up and in! This is to prevent people from parking on other private land nearby. Turnover is high, just wait in your car until someone leaves. Portapotties at twin falls. I recommend you stop at Jaws about 2-3 miles prior to twin falls. Indoor toilets and decent food and snacks available. It is a great place to visit. There are 3 waterfalls, each have pools you can swim in. First one, lower falls, is less than 1/4 mile from parking. Second is 1/3 mile up the trail and almost identical to the first. Twin falls is the third and last waterfall and almost 1 mile from the entrance. The first 2 have rocks for jumping in. You can’t jump off of hidden falls but it is so worth the hike. It is beautiful. For twin falls, I recommend Keene’s, slides, or shoes you don’t mind getting wet. There are streams to cross to get there with 3-4” of water. I had a blast jumping off the rocks and swimming under the waterfall.

    Exceptional spot!
    We followed the Twin Falls Maui website. We had an absolutely amazing time. The first set of falls is a very easy walk and an absolutely stunning view. We are a family of five with three boys and all three absolutely loved it. The onsite food truck has delicious smoothies and banana bread. This is a great place to visit while on Maui.

    Nice hike, underwhelming water falls
    To start, limited parking and not well organized. $10 per car. Be prepared for muddy roads. The upper trail has loose rocks in places. It says experienced hikers only but as long as you are reasonably fit and without mobility issues you will be ok. Hiking or running shoes recommended and water shoes or sandals for places where you have to cross streams (there are rocks you can use to cross). At the end is the water falls. It was only a trickle when we went. If there had been more rain in the days prior it probably would be more spectacular (it was a dribble). But if there had been more rain the road would have been muddier and the walk would have been more difficult. As the t was it was a good walk amongst the green foliage on both side of the trail listening to birds. Oh yes there were some biting insects too.

    Nice and may revisit when waters are clear
    Nice little farm stand with homemade pineapple banana popsicles on a sugarcane stick. The falls were nice but murky when we went as they just experienced lots of rainfall which drives the earth into the falls and takes about a week or so to clear up. Since it wasn’t very clear we chose not to swim in it but others did and still seemed to enjoy it! We found out you can always call ahead to ask the conditions before going. But as a visitor sometimes time just doesn’t allow for that. Spent less than an hour here, with the two short trail walks. Parking was $10. May stop by again when we go on the full road to Hana if the waters are more clear.

    Cute and picturesque
    Beautiful, easy little hike. Lots of people on the trail, including kids and some elderly folk (but no dogs). Parking was starting to fill up pretty quick when we showed up a little before 10 AM on a Thursday. Prepare to get your feet wet. I wore flip flops.

    Great Place to Experience Waterfalls
    This was recommended to us by some fellow guests at our hotel, and we’re so glad we went. Both the upper and lower falls were beautiful. The hike to the upper falls was fairly easy, but the trail could have been more clearly marked. Some people struggled with traversing a small river. Once there, we swam in the beautiful water and viewed the cave-like structure under the falls. The lower falls, which are a very short walk from the entrance, also offered a nice pool to swim in.

    No posted closure updates
    We drove very far to the falls. After we paid $10, we were told that the upper trail ( and swimming pools) were closed and no swimming was allowed. There were no updates posted on their Instagram, Facebook, or website. As parking is very limited, I wonder if they want visitors to come for a shorter time, so they can charge more cars throughout the day.

After the addition of parking attendants that treat the waterfall like a club, letting only those they want at the falls it’s become almost impossible to gain access to the falls. The parking attendants are rude and aren’t even good at their job since they are losing money by not filling empty spots. I recommend going thirteen miles up to upper wakani falls instead.

This family is rude and on a power trip. There is limited parking and even though 4 cars were leaving at the time we arrived they yelled and cussed at us for trying to wait for the parking spots. They were offensive and obnoxious- we were told there is another better falls 15 mins past this one so I would highly recommend passing by twin falls and do the next hike through the bamboo forest. Maybe if more people would avoid this area the family would realize that they rely on being kind to tourists if they want to have a thriving business.

THE BEST EXPERIENCE!!! WE got out early to avoid the larger crowds and I am so glad we did. We were not the first to make it to the waterfalls, but it was still pretty peaceful. There is a bit of a hike to get to the larger waterfall, but nothing too strenuous. My husband and I don't hike, and this was perfect - so much so that we might start hiking a little more often back home. The beauty of the area was mesmerizing and the waterfalls were breathtaking. Maybe next time we will be adventurous enough to continue on to the Road to Hana! Twin Falls was certainly worth the trip, but be sure to get there early because parking does fill up quick because they have a small lot. Bring extra cash for the food truck for snacks.

If you're doing the Road to Hana, you must stop here. It's very early in the long road to Hana. The parking is extremely limited, and they charge you $10 to park. The fruit stand at the entrance is a must visit, but wait until you're done. The hike back to the two falls is pretty easy, I would say, for most guests. It's uphill and sometimes a bit rocky, but it's doable. The first waterfall is only about 10 ft. tall. My 17-year old son jumped in easily. He was even able to climb the rock wall to get to the top. To find the second waterfall, you have to walk a ways back on the path. From front to the back falls, it's about a mile. The back waterfall is supposedly 35-40 ft. You can jump from the top after a slick climb around the side. If you're brave, I definitely recommend doing the jump. Don't forget to stop at the fruit stand before you leave. The pineapple is fantastic as is the banana bread.

Great experience as always. The folks of Wailele Farms who own the property take good care of the grounds and it’s well managed. Parking is limited to the lot right off the street and the overflow lot, $10 cash fee. We arrived before 9 on a weekday and had no issues with parking. I’ve always worn slippers (called flip flops everywhere but Hawaii) but then again, I used to live on Maui and have been to Twin Falls several times in the past. It can get pretty muddy so don’t wear nice shoes and it rains in Haiku pretty much daily so you may get damp. The hike to the highest main fall is about 20 minutes in and fairly easy. Beautifully lush, green area—a quintessential tropical area of Maui that I feel, is well worth it. Farm Stand near the entrance serves fresh pineapple and cane smoothies or juice, homemade banana bread, coffee & candied coconut. Put it on your list.

It's simply not worth it. I wish I had read reviews prior to visiting and paying to see the falls. Not one to usually give such low reviews but this one deserves it.

This set of waterfalls is one of the first attractions on the road to Hana which explains why it's so busy (not worth $10). As you drive further down the road to Hana you'll see other attractions which are actually worth the money (Garden of Eden, Lava Tube, Kahanu Garden). Google images shows waterfalls I sure didn't see when visiting Twin Falls.

On the road to Hana you'll see much prettier waterfalls which you can see for free. I took a picture of the falls just as proof. If I were to drive by these falls without pay I wouldn't have taken much more than a 5 second gaze.

There are walking trails here and again, there are free walking trails that are more scenic on the road to Hana (ex: Ke'anae Arboretum)

On a positive note, good on the owners for making bank on this. Textbook tourist trap.

I know it’s one of the first things to do from a nature perspective on the Hana highway. It was certainly neat, but if overly crowded it’s not worth the time. There’s still so much more to see out there, don’t let this distract you. If you skip it, give yourself two free “stops” along the way, as long as you can safely park your car out of the road.

However, if you have little kids with you, this will be fun activity. I imagine their little legs would treat this short hike like a much longer hike and it’s your first preview for things to come along the road.

This is the only stop on the Road to Hana that actually has a parking lot. It is small lot and persistence is key. We decided to go to the Garden of Eden 1st and then come back to it, which was a good idea. We arrived around 3:45pm and were able to get a parking spot. The walk to the falls "area" is easy. However, getting down to the pool is tricky & risky, next you cross a small stream, climb over & under some fallen trees, walk across river rocks, & then splash into the pool.

WEAR WATER SHOES! The flexibility of the shoe allows you to scale the steep next to nothing path down to the pool & climb back up. They also protect your feet from the river rocks that are everywhere around & in the pool. The pool is amazing and refreshing. You can swim right under the falls and then there is a micro fall to the left that is pretty cool.

We did not leave enough time to walk to the upper falls as that closed at 5pm.

Oh, there are fire ants, so try to stay away from being under the trees or leaving your items where you can see the ants.

There is a $10 parking fee which gives you access to 3 sets of waterfalls and the best one by far requires you to cross over water. It’s about a 25 minutes hike in but the water & falls are easily accessible - you literally just walk right in then. Bring rock friendly water shoes! We were not prepared and my husband had to take off his shoes & socks each time. We took our dog with us & it’s a very dog friendly place. Use the bathroom ahead of time as the only restrooms are outhouses and they are horrific.
