Reservations are now required for visitor access to Waianapanapa State Park beginning March 1, 2021.

Visitors will be charged a fee of $10 per vehicle for parking or $5 per person for entry via foot or bike. Hawaii residents with state ID or driver’s license are exempt and will have free entry and parking, with stalls held to accommodate residents.

The goal is to reduce congestion at peak times and ultimately increase the visitor experience by establishing limits on the number of daily visitors.

Weather in Hana

Hana is located in one of the last pristine rainforests in Hawaii and it takes a bit of rain to keep Hana Maui so lush and green. We sometimes experience passing showers (blessings) and some days are more blessed than others… a light rain poncho or a small umbrella may come in handy. Enjoy the beautiful waterfalls on the Hana Highway, but approach them with caution and heed any posted warning signs as flash flooding can occur especially after high rainfall on the mountain.
