Historic Paia Train Depot turned Healthy Cafe and Yoga Center on Maui

In the not so distant past a train traversed some of north Maui’s rugged terrain.  The Paia Train Depot was a stopping point for the freight and passenger line which connected Haiku and Kahului.  The freight on this train line was pineapple and sugar,  but the Paia station also served as an important passenger link from 1884 to 1966.   The train had to traverse the Maliko Gulch on a trestle, finally reaching Kahului on the northwest coast with it’s freight and passengers.
