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

It's right on mile marker 6.5 there's a yellow gate which says no trespassing. the way to get in is through a hole between the trees and bushes, I believe there's 3 entrances, and you'll probably find few cars parked. we were told to follow the stream but ended up with a dead end. so get ready to spend few...

Let's start with that we started on the waterfall hunt a little late in the day, so there was not a crowd of people to follow (in or OUT of the forest). We found the first two waterfalls with ease and were pleased by the second one. Fortunately, we found someone to help us get started in the right direction... More

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
