Are all of the waterfalls dry on the Road to Hana? Is the one at the of of Pipiwe trail dry as well? Looking for information regarding this.
Waimoku Falls, on the Pipiwai, is running, but not hugely. Some of the others are still running too....but that's like always-if we get more rain, they'll be good. If we don't, they won't!
The waterfalls are rain dependent. It's not the beginning of dry season yet so there should be water in them. Especially Waimoku!!
We've been quite dry...............
Are they typically dry in mid-July? Was looking into a hike with Maui Mike for wife and daughter, specifically because they wanted to see the falls. I know it's like Vegas - it's a gamble on the weather.
It is really dry in parts of Hana right now. Sad but true..
Yes, the falls are more like trickles most summers (and like now, some spring times, too).
July is a tough call. We can get some tropical storms and/or heavy convective weather on the mountain, which will then "refill" the waterfalls. Of course, the road may also close and/or flood.
The "dry season" is not something fixed and concrete. It changes, just like the weather itself does.
This year is a great example. I've had maybe three noticeable rainshowers up NW in the last 3 months. I *should* have had rain in January & some in Feb., but had almost nothing. My January water bill was just under my July 2016 bill. My March bill made me cringe when I opened it yesterday.....it's *more* than my July bill was.
