Ulaino Road Trail to Blue Pool and Blue Angel Falls Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Blue Angel Falls cascades 100 feet off the fern-covered lava cliffs into Blue Pool on the beach a few steps from the ocean. The hike down Ulaino Road passes through a lush tropical forest with kukui, hala and guava trees.

The road ends at a cove by the abandoned village of Ulaino, where old stone walls overtaken by the jungle still remain. Heleleikeoha Stream flows through the rocky cove, forming a shallow lagoon before entering the sea."

You will see road closed signs as well as parking here signs along this road. There is a LOT of local controversy over access to this waterfall. Past trekkers have caused problems for local landowners. Some welcome hikers and you can pay to park along their front yards; others chase you away with a machete. Basically the updated guides and folks in the know will say this site is now KAPU, forbidden, no trespassing. You can hike along 'Ula'ino Road; and IF you can ford the stream to reach the end of the road; and IF you can find parking, you still have to cross the stream IF that is safe to do; and make your way along a very narrow, rocky coastline with slippery boulders, tricky footing, and waves crashing in. There are no facilities and inappropriate disposal of human waste which damaged the pool ecosystem was one of the problems that closed this site. Enjoy the easy hikes in Kanahu Gardens instead. Hike to Pi’ilanihale Heiau, one of the largest ancient Hawaiian temples in the state as well as enjoying amazing ocean vistas of the rugged east Maui coastline. You will see the signs along 'Ula'ino Road.
