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!

I think hiking through the bamboo forest was one of the most memorable experiences that we had in Maui. The sound of the bamboo being blown in the wind was just amazing. I was shocked at how thick the bamboo forest was. This is a must do when you are in Maui. The trail is about 10 miles past Hana.

Going through the bamboo forest is my favorite hike in all of Hawaii. The day we went, it was a bit cloudy and drizzled a bit - but this just added to the mystique of the trail. Along the trail, it was almost eerie with the green bamboo crowding in all around and the dark soil with only muted light... More

Stopped at Milepost 6.5 on the Hana Highway, and parked along the right side of the road. Several places to hike down. Forest trails are slippery - make sure you have good footwear. Bugs are bad - have your bug spray on before you head down. Bamboo forest is dense - blocks out most of the light. Best to take... More

Here we were, in the sunny Hawaiian Islands, and in the middle of the day, and was dark out! This is one dense forest. Great hike.

After a 4.5 hrs drive from our hotel finally we arrived to the trail, the rainy was poring down all the way through but we didn't care, the bamboo forest is mesmerizing, I have never seen such an amazing, strong and healthy bamboo sticks, reaching to the skies, the most beautiful trees and waterfall are also on the trail, once...

just stop where the road to hana gets crowded with parked cars. the entrance is hard to find, just look for the marked entrance. At first the hike can be a bit slippery, but keep going, it is the hardest part. there is a great waterfall at the end of the hike, and the entire hike is beautiful.

this was a hard to find hike, as there are a couple in the area. we did it without our shoes on which seemed so much easier on the rocks and climbing up the ropes. at the almost end we knew there was one more waterfall to see and we tried to scale the mountain to the right, but that... More

We just returned from Maui and went on an amazing hike in the Bamboo Forrest Trail. I read a few reviews that said it was difficult to find but if you can count you can easily find this place. Outside of Paia, the mile markers are already in the teens but don't be confused, they start over again after marker... More
