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.
