If you’re hoping to see some classic Maui waterfalls, the Makamakaole Stream Trail is the way to go! You get two waterfalls in three miles and 13 stream crossings along the way as you hike along the valley floor through the vibrant green vegetation.
This hike is just a few minutes away from the Waihe’e Ridge Trail and was perfect to do right after. You hike through the jungle along the stream and cross it at least 13 times. At least, that’s according to AllTrails but they also said this hike was only two miles and we clocked it at over three miles. It’s definitely rocky and took us much longer than our normal mile time because we were watching our step – so definitely make sure you’ve got good footwear. We made it to the small falls first. They’re beautiful and at the end of the trail. The larger falls are at a fork probably about a tenth of a mile before the trail ends and there were not just beautiful but had people swimming and cliff jumping.
