Aloha Everyone!

I was just reading an article that states Nahiku has some stipulations as far as which roads are forbidden to go down by tourists, private properties,and what is government property? Nahiku looks like such a lovely place to visit, but I do not want to disturb anyone or trespass on private property. If someone can fill me in on which roads are permissable and which are not, I would be so thankful .

Many Mahalos!

I don't know if there are taboos on where you can go but if the road is on Google Maps, it's a public road ''
Don't go on private roads just like you wouldn't anywhere else.

I guess you'd exercise the same caution in the backwoods of Maui you would in the backwoods of Alabama

Nope, there are private roads shown on Google maps, too. At least there are on our island, I dunno about Maui.

If a sign says "KAPU," my advice is KEEP OUT. It's a respect thing, much as NO TRESPASSING is on the mainland.

With aloha, of course.

Whynot:

We would never disreguard a "Kapu" Keep Out sign. We have much respect for others privacy as we appreciate respect for ours. That is why I wanted to know what is permisable and what isn't. I thank you for your warnings.

Many Mahalos,

Found this on a hawaii guide initially speaking about the road and what you'd find there. It ended with this update.

UPDATE: Starting in late 2008, we have been hearing numerous reports about access being restricted to the Bay at the end of the road. You may encounter "Closed - Kapu" signs before the bridge or even further up the road. It is our suggestion that visitors now skip Nahiku Road as a stop along the Hana Highway. Nahiku Road isn't meant to cater to the masses, and its popularity amongst visitors has exploded in recent years. Like Helele‘ike‘oha Falls (Blue Pool) on 'Ula'ino Road, this spot has become a victim of too much publicity. We will be updating our 'Hana Highway - Mile by Mile' book to reflect this change.

Wish I had read this before our recent trip! There is definitely a KAPU sign. We didn't go past that point, but we drove a fair way down the road before getting there.

I read that UPDATE as well. So....I'm wondering if going down Nahiku road is completely off limits? or can you drive down the road until you see the KAPU Signs?
