Maui Cycling Routes

Tour of Haiku – Beginner

15 miles, 1,300’ elevation gain

A short lollipop route along the Hana Highway, highlighted by a short climb into Haiku. Cruise along a few fun miles of tight, windy rollers through the jungle before a return to Paia!

A lollipop route through the jungle town of Haiku!

Starting at our shop, take two quick rights to head east on the Hana Highway. Continue out past Ho’okipa Lookout and onwards through the sweeping S turn, where the grade turns uphill.

Next, take your first right onto Haiku Rd, which brings you into downtown Haiku. If you’re feeling hungry, there are plenty of good eats in the immediate area. Then, turn left to continue onto Haiku Rd, where the rolling, windy jungle miles begin!

At the 4-way intersection (mile 8.5 on our route), turn left downhill on E Kuiaha Rd. Take another left to get back onto the Hana Highway en route back toward Paia. Save for one quarter-mile kicker through the S-turn, it’s a net descent back to town…often, with a tailwind!
