I looked forward to this hike for months! And we were unsure if we would actually make it all the way to Oheo Gulch (we had a 4 year old and 6 year old with us and were unsure how they would do on the Road to Hana), but we made it and were so excited to be there! The... More

There is a $10 park entry fee, but if you pay the fee save your receipt and you can get into he park for 3 days, also good for going to the crater. The hike could be fairly strenuous if you're not in shape and is slippery in spots. Wear good hiking shoes and bring water. Hike is up hill... More

Bamboo forest hard to describe, but that is a highlight of this trip. About a 2 hour round trip hike..with an amazing 400' waterfall at the turn around point. Lots of warning signs..as it can be a bit trecherous..but not a bad hike. Starts off hot and rocky, but once you hit the bamboo it is another world. Then the... More

Awesome hike to Waimoku falls. Its a fairly long hike but totally worth it in the end with spectacular views. Good hike for the adventure seekers.

This is a great hike trough a rainforest and bamboo forest. The trail is well maintained but if it is wet be careful on the boardwalk I saw one person completely loose their footing.

Unbelievable!!!! We started at the seven pools, which were inaccessible due to the water levels and currents being high and strong. Visited this part 3-1/2 years ago, but the falls thus time were better. Then we started the hike up the trail. It kept getting better and better. Venturing off the trail (in non cliff areas), lead to views that... More

This is a beautiful trail with really nice looking bamboo grove on the way. The best part is the waterfall at the end of the trail. Though the access to the waterfall is restricted many still go to the fall. Rocks to the fall are very slippery with danger of getting seriously injured.

Just did this yesterday - 7/9/14. The drive and the hike take most of the day. We left Kihei at 7am and returned at 4pm. All the traffic coming in as we were leaving made us realize how peaceful and enjoyable our drive in and hike was. The most lush green place I've ever seen, enjoy!!!

We had a great time hiking the Pipiwai Trail. The terrain is a little rocky, but it is an easy hike. Our favorite part was the bamboo forest and obviously the waterfall at the end of the trail. The drive on the road to Hana is awful, but hiking this trail was almost worth it! It took us about 2.5... More
