Maui is a splendid place filled to the brim with all manner of beauty and wonder. People flock from all over the world to take in Maui’s sights. A great way to explore this gorgeous landscape is by visiting one of the area’s impressive state parks and IMI Tours can craft an experience for you that you’ll never forget, by taking you through two state parks that underline just how stellar Maui really is.
Hawaii is truly wonderful, a visually compelling place that features a wide array of wildlife, flora, and natural beauty. You can better explore these jungles and fauna-laced places by stopping by some of the maintained state parks littered throughout the area. Pua'a Ka´a State Park is one of Maui’s best treasures on the Road to Hana, featuring recently upgraded facilities and an array of park benches, there are even covered picnic spots so you can enjoy a day out without the worry of rain ruining the fun.
Pua'a Ka´a State Park is a half-mile past Mile Marker 22. It features a nice, paved trail that leads to several small waterfalls. There is a larger waterfall that is located upstream but you’ll need to traverse through muddy and dirt-laden conditions to get there. It’s recommended to wear the proper shoes and attire if you want to pass across the aqueduct to see this magnificent sight.
Pua'a Ka´a State Park is also home to many mongooses, so you’ll want to be sure you are on the lookout for these creatures.
If you’re looking for something a little more coastal, you’ll want to stop by Kaumahina State Park. This beautiful, scenic rest stop features 7.8 acres of forested land and also sits against the Maui coastline, just past Mile Marker 12. It features a fantastic view of the Ke’anae Peninsula and was recently renovated in 2005, meaning it features updated facilities, with restrooms, picnic areas, trash cans, and other amenities.
There are several looping trails that wind their way uphill from the nearby ocean, giving you a great glimpse at some of Maui’s gorgeous exotic plants and foliage. Kaumahina State Park is also a fantastic place to do some birdwatching, so it would definitely benefit you to bring along some binoculars or other spotting gear. All in all, Kaumahina State Park is the perfect place to have a picnic, enjoy the sights, and take in the breathtaking views of the oceans surrounding Maui.
