The Lahaina, Kaanapali and Pacific Railroad operates the Sugar Cane Train, a 6-mile, 40-minute trip in open-air coaches pulled by vintage steam locomotives. The tracks connect Lahaina with Puukolii, stopping briefly at Kaanapali. A narrator points out sites of interest during the trip, which crosses a 325-foot curved wooden trestle with panoramic views of neighboring islands and the West Maui Mountains.

The Lahaina, Ka'anapali, and Pacific Railroad operates the Sugar Cane Train, a replica narrow gauge steam-powered locomotive with open air passenger cars, that runs on a 6 mile stretch of railroad recreating the path originally used to haul sugar cane from the plantation fields in Ka'anapali to the Pioneer Mill in Lahaina.  The 45 minute (1 1/2 hours round trip) narrated trip meanders through former sugar cane fields turned neighborhoods and golf courses and as it enters Lahaina, unfortunately, takes you through backyards, behind shopping centers, and through areas that we will politely call trash piles.  While this is only a small section of the trip it was enough to make us think twice about doing it again...
