This is the most amazing and stunning forest in Maui. There are many trails and it is easy to get lost inside. The good thing about these forest trails is that you know it is a well worn path. There are usually many people in the forest in the day, it wouldn't be recommended to go in towards afternoon night... More

We hiked up there with our friends from Maui. We overnight on the Camping side there and in the morning we took a bath in the pools before we started the hike! If you have time, I can only recommend it! In the morning you have the pools all for you! The Bamboo Forest is nice because the hike is... More

There is nothing much to do here but explore but it is so stunning. There are multiple trails that take you over rivers, through the dense forest and to lookouts over the whole valley. It's self-directed so spend as much or as little time as you like. Some of it is challenging terrain so it's not for those with limited... More

We heard about this place from some locals. Very cool but it was raining heavily when we were there so didn't get to do the whole trail. It's a neat place to see with several waterfalls. It's worth the stop to get some cool photos. Never seen so much bamboo.

My wife and I decided to hike up to the bamboo forest after we had our lunch. It was a long walk but wasn't difficult. Most of the trail through the bamboo forest is on a Trex walkway.

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.
