Trip to Hawaii

[Maui] East – 7 Road to Hana

Hana-1
Hana Highway是以Mile Marker來作指標, 從Pa'ia到Hana, Mile Marker的數字是往上增加, 但是, 過了Hana Town之後的Mile Marker數字則變成遞減.

Hana-3
Hana-2
Hana-4
很多橋都是單線寬度, 所以你會先看到上圖左的指示牌, 要求減速; 然後會看到上圖右的指示牌, 要求目視對向是否有來車, 如果有, 我方要在停止線暫停 (白色三角型), 等對向來車通過後再繼續前進.

這些單線道的橋其實都有百年歷史, 實在需要工程師以現今的技術加以改造, 但是當地政府和居民沒有經費維修, 而聯邦撥款修橋的規定是要將橋從原本的單線道寬度改成雙線道寬度, 但是遭到當地居民反對, 所以在Road to Hana這段路上的橋都還是維持單線, 只有少數幾座位在Back Road的橋是很新的雙線寬度, 不過我看在不久的將來, 那些窄橋會因為安全問題而被迫改造維修成雙線寬度.

RedSand-1
RedSand-2
Kaihalulu Beach
– red sand beach. The trail begins at the
Sea Ranch Cottages (Uakea Rd過Hauoli Roads走到底 /死巷).  Trail is advanced and should be hiked with extreme caution on
loose gravel. 這個海灘蠻隱秘的, 因為一來Trailhead不是很好找, 二來沙石路不好走, 有的路段陡斜, 要非常小心. 當地人都是沿著峭壁走, 我建議各位往海方向去, 走Lava Rock比較安全.

Thai-3
Thai Food
Parking is at the corner of Uakea &
Hauoli Roads. 所有的菜都是現點現作, 味道蠻不錯, 只做午餐, 所以你可以多買一個炒飯, 放在冰箱, 晚上微波加熱當晚餐吃.

FYI -  All mile markers start
counting down after Hana Town.

NP-6
Pipiwai Trails is a 4-mile round trip, 一開始是泥土路, 然後就變成泥巴路 (千萬不要穿夾腳拖鞋, 一來很滑, 二來對腳不好), 0.5 mile 會先遠眺一個瀑布, 然後會看到一個很大的Banyan Tree, 接著會看到上下二個瀑布, 約1.5 miles 就走進一個很大很長的竹林, 幾乎不見天空, 最後就是仰望遠在天邊的瀑布 (可以走到瀑布下方). 這個步道不難走 (但是泥巴路很滑就是了), 來回約3-4小時, 如果下午去走, 記得要算好來回的時間是在天黑前會走回來比較安全. (一定要事先噴防蚊液)

Pool-2
Kuloa Point Trail – can see Seven Sacred Pools.

Charles Lindberg’s grave – One mile
past Ohe’s Gulch at Ho’omau Church.
