It took us a couple of try's to find the "Bamboo Forest", after our first try we went back to Paia and found a couple of county workers eating lunch and asked them for directions. Most reviewers are not clear that you have to go past mile post 15 outside of Paia, highway 36 then turns into highway 360 where... More

We are frequent visitors to Maui but this was our first time venture to the Bamboo Forest. This location is close to Haiku, along Highway 360 (Road to Hana). The drive to the 6.5 Mile Marker isn't too far from Paia and we decided to have lunch in Paia since it was easier than packing a picnic lunch. There are... More

Thanks to the young waiter at the Kula Lodge who recommended and gave us directions to the bamboo forest. Fortunately our condo neighbors recommended water shoes for this trip. We stopped at Kmart for some cheapies and them headed out. Sure enough at mile marker 6.5 we found a bunch of cars and a place to park. After donning our... More

Getting to this place can be a challenge if you have fears of tight roads. But it is worth the drive and hike. I love getting out in nature and seeing untouched fields. This is so worth the time and you will miss a fantastic place. Just go!

Just so readers are aware -- this thread is a mix of reviews of **two different bamboos forests** on Maui where one can hike to see waterfalls. One is within Haleakala National Park (the lower portion near Hana and the Seven Pools). The other is at milepost 6.5 on the Hana Road (near Haiku going toward Hana). So if you... More

Follow the trails and sounds through the Bamboo Forest to the waterfalls and you will find a refreshing pool at the foot to swim in. Wear good shoes.... I did not and my flip flops were trash at the end of the hike. Wear clothes that can get dirty too! Do not wait until too late in the day as... More

Beautiful hike. Tough on the ankles but even guests in less than perfect fitness can do it. Park in the "Oheo Gulch" aka "Seven Sacred Pools" parking lot.

This is a easy hike through a tall and dense bamboo forest. It's truly amazing. It will lead you up to the water falls at a pool that's beautiful. Just be careful of falling rocks near the waterfall. I've seen them come down.

The first time we did this hike it was off season and we were virtually alone on the trail and it was magical, just hearing the wind whisper through the huge bamboo. This time we went in May, later in the day, so we had quite a few companions. Some are slower movers, we hike fast. So we got a... More
