Hike Summary: The hike to Twin Falls is an easy two mile roundtrip to a pool at the base. After a short distance from the parking area, several side trails break left and descend to Hoolawa Stream, a smaller waterfall and pool. Otherwise, continue up and into the valley passing some homesites up and toward the larger waterfall. The stop is the first for many vacationers on the famed "Road to Hana" and if the parking area is crowded you may want to return later in the day. There are numerous waterfalls on the way to Hana and many are as impressive (or more impressive) than those at Twin Falls.
