It so cool to hear the wind while walking on the bamboo forest. The bamboo clanks together from the wind making it's own song. The air is nice and cool and it smells musty.

Great hike and you will be challenged by the trails and crossing the streams. We had a great time. I would recommend it to anyone.

This hike is on my top 10 list of places I've visited for sure. It rained while we were there and the sound of rain falling in the forest was amazing. The hike is well marked and not exactly difficult but not easy either. The elevation climb is pretty significant. We saw several young kids on the trail though so... More

This section of the trail was my favorite! Lots of turns and steps through the bamboo on nice board pathways. Neat to hear the sounds they make and to look in and know how dense the growth is.

My husband and I stayed in Hana for a few nights and then drove the road past Hana back to the west side of Maui. As other reviewers have stated, the Pipiwai Trail (where the bamboo forest is), is located several miles past Hana. The trail is a beautiful and easy hike. There's a waterfall lookout early in the trail... More

The bamboo forest is actually part of the Pipiwai Trail. Some of the bamboo gets quite large in diameter and very dense. It sounds cool when the wind blows and the bamboo bangs together.

It is best to go early and be prepared for a hike. It is about a mile/mile and half hike up to the bamboo forest but totally worth it. I recommend the back way to the park vs the Road to Hana the sites are prettier. with the drive to and from the park be prepared for a full day.

I loved the Bamboo Forest. I went with my husband a few years back and I was amazed. The wind was blowing gently and the forest sounded like one big bamboo chime. You feel so small amongst the huge bamboos, what a pleasant surprise. I enjoyed the forest more than the waterfall. I plan on returning in January with my... More

I did not even know there was a such thing as an entire forest of bamboo trees! Don't miss this!!! It was so awesome. It's a non-treacherous hike. There is a clear path that alternates between dirt, rocks and wooden planks. Good for all ages!
