If you want to put in a little bit of extra effort (just a little bit), then you can park the car and then walk across the bridge for some better pictures.

There’s a decent-size parking area here. (Relative to most Road to Hana stops!)

These waterfalls are actually located a little past Hana town, and you’ll find them as you’re on your way to the the coastal side (Kipahulu district) of Haleakala National Park. The coastal side of the national park is where you’ll find the famous bamboo forest of the Pipiwai Trail. So if you’re planning on hiking the Pipiwai Trail, then you can stop by Wailua Falls on your way there, or your way back.

 

 

Location of the start of the trail to Wailua Falls

If you want to get closer to the waterfalls, there’s a short little hike you can do.

When you’re on the bridge facing the waterfalls, the trail will start off on the right side of the bridge.

There is a little bit of climbing over rocks on the trail but nothing too treacherous.

It might be helpful to wear watershoes or hiking sandals though! (This can be good for the Road to Hana in general!)
