A medium 2.0 mile hike to the Waimoku Falls (definitely not an "easy" hike as some will say). The Falls are beautiful & well worth the hike - you get to hike through amazing bamboo forests. Start as early as you can to avoid the warmer temps & be very careful on the wet rocks of the olivine pools. The... More

My husband and I did the 2 mile walk through the dense bamboo forest and met our reward at the end with a giant waterfall! The walk was amazing - take your time, bring some water with and have good walking/ hiking shoes on. The bamboo is something to see and hear when the wind blows and provided us some... More

Two mile hike: First half of hike not really astounding scenic, but then the rest is nice with bamboo forest followed by huge waterfall. Going is longer than coming back as going is more uphill, return is downhill. I used bug spray as precaution and was fine. Latter part of day the sun is not overhead in bamboo forest so... More

First you walk by cliffs looking down on waterfalls and pools then walk under a huge banyan tree then hike,a mile through a thick bamboo forest and then you end up at a 400-hundred foot waterfall. One of the greatest walks I've ever taken. Did it both times I visited Hana.

Although getting to the Pipiwai Trail at the southern end of Hana Hwy is a somewhat strenuous drive (several parts nearing 330 hwy are unpaved and single direction, be prepared with a playlist, water and snacks, and good brakes), the trail is fantastic! The trail can be done in about 3hrs at a relaxed paced. The humidity and elevation does... More

Have only done this hike twice, but plan to do it every other time I visit Maui. Every point of this hike is beautiful and there are plenty of photo opportunities. My favorite parts were the banyan tree, bridges, bamboo forest and the massive waterfall.

We did a family hike in February. Other reviews said it is an easy climb but if you are not regularly active, it can be a tough climb (recommend comfortable shoes for older crowd). Our young kids did great but bring water. Bamboo forest is awesome - hearing the bamboo "make music" in the wind was incredible. Worth the hike... More

This was our first stop on the Road to Hana. We decided to drive to the end point and then make our way up, because we wanted to spent as much time as we could here. Give this place a solid 2.5hrs, so you can soak it in. It's a leisure hike. Don't rush it, or you might roll an... More

Gorgeous views, awesome bamboo corridors to hike through, and the banyan tree was awesome. We loved finishing the hike with a refreshing swim at the 7 sacred pools.

This was one great hike. Too bad that the pool at the bottom of the waterfall was only about 10 inches deep. :( It took us a couple hours to walk it and my fit-bit said that we went over 10000 steps once we got back to our car.
