As you take the bridge over Makapipi stream near mile marker 25 on the Hana Highway be sure to stop to check out the falls under the bridge. Here you'll find Makapipi Falls, one of the most interesting falls on the Hana Highway. The Makapipi Stream flows within the lava streambed into a pristine blue pool. The Hana Highway crosses directly over the stream allowing folks a view of the falls over the bridge railing. The flow of the falls is dependent on rainfall, but if flowing is very intriguing to witness. To access this spot, park just beyond the bridge where there is a small pull off and walk back onto the bridge to look down on the makai side of the road.
