Twin Falls Maui

Hoolawa ValleyHo'olawa Valley

Wailele Farm is part of an ahupua'a which extends from the mountain to the sea. The valley is called Ho'olawa, which translates to "to provide, to share in abundance, to equip or make available so everyone has enough." The Ko'olau rainforest, which feeds the two Ho'olawa streams running through our farm, is filled with fresh water year-round. On average there is 80-100 inches of rain per year in this rainforest. This fresh water provides ideal growing conditions for an abundance of plant life. Contained within this valley is all that is necessary for sustainability; fertile soil, fresh water and sunlight. In keeping with the meaning of Ho'olawa, Wailele Farm works hard to maintain the land and keep hiking paths open to the public.

WaterfallWaterfalls & Hiking

Ho'olawa Valley is home to multiple waterfalls. The lower falls are close to the entrance and relatively easy to access. They're a bit smaller, but picturesque and often overlooked. To view the lower falls there are two overlooks. The first is a short walk past the portable toilets, then a trail to the left off the gravel road next to a log bench. This is the "Twin Falls" waterfall. The second is a little farther up the gravel road. Look for another log bench as a landmark to find the second overlook. These overlooks are recommended because of their close proximity to the parking lot. Traveling further, you can get to the waterfall that is in most of the images (Caveman Falls). This pool is much larger, and usually more crowded than the previous falls. It's a bit more difficult to access and a further hike. To find Caveman follow the gravel road 3/4 of a mile until you reach the forest. You will pass driveways and farm trails. Please be respectful and stay on the road. At the three way intersection, take a left and follow the rocky path. Be advised... This is a more difficult path due to uneven, rocky and slippery terrain as well as other hazards...

 

Rules & Parking

warning signParking is limited, so when the first lot is full, it's best to go to the second lot instead of waiting. Waiting can cause a traffic jam and make things much worse. When using the additional parking down the street, please don't leave your valuables. Theft has been known to occur here.

Please follow these simple rules:

  • Safety First - Be advised...During heavy rain and flash conditions Wailele Farm safety personnel will monitor water levels. In dangerous conditions they will close access to the valley, or sections of, at their discretion. During those conditions signs will be posted in obvious locations... Please follow all signs and directions from safety personnel. If raining heavily, flash floods are possible. Also, if you plan on going to the falls further down the trail, there is a stream you have to cross that can be dangerous.
  • Stay on Paths - Straying from the path could put you over an unstable cliff or trespassing in someone's backyard.
  • Don't Pick Fruit - Wailele Farm depend on the production to help fund maintenance of the area. If you want some of the local, fresh produce, go to the farm stand.
  • Respect the Land - Please, don't litter or pollute. This is one of the purest places on the planet.
  • Respect the People - Families live in the area, so stay on paths and be respectful of them and each other. Your being able to visit this beautiful place is a gift.
  • Stop Theft - Take valuables with you or leave them at home. Leaving valuable objects in your car just makes thieves more likely to stick around this area.
  • Contribute to the Toilet Fund - If you use the porta potties, please leave some money. It's expensive to keep them clean and maintained.
  • Support Wailele - Ensure that the area stays free to the public by supporting the farm stand. By enjoying smoothies, fresh coconuts, tasty banana bread, apple bananas, and delicious coconut candy you allow Wailele to continue maintaining the property for your easy access.
