Path takes some hours on both waysm it is great and eds up to wonderful waterfall. I would advise taking it in the morning while it is not that hot. Bamboo forest is somewhere in the middle and it is so cool and refreshing. Have never seen such a forest ever!

Amazing trails and views! Not like anything you've seen before! Not suggested for those with mobility issues. Bring your bathing suit!

My goal was to see the bamboo forest, the waterfall at the end was just an added bonus. This trail starts off with rock steps and dirt, then it turns into a wooden platform (very easy to walk on, kind of slippery). The bamboo forest was a beautiful sight and the hike wasn't too difficult.

This is a beautiful section of the Pipiwa Trail. We spent a bit of time here taking lots of photos before continuing on to the waterfall. The way the light filters through depending on the time of day and weather is really beautiful. Definitely worth the hike and the main reason we did this trail. Tip - keep the receipt... More

We haven't seen any bamboo forest before and that was the main reason we decided to hike that trail (we saw many other waterfalls, so it was not our primary goal). It is really amazing, gives you opportunities to make some unusual photos... Highly recommended!

I had never seen a bamboo forest and quite honestly could have cared less for the waterfalls and was focused on seeing bamboo. It was totally worth all the grunting and sweating to get to see this beautiful forest. It is like nothing else I have have ever seen in my life and I am so glad I got to... More

When you travel to the bamboo forest, take the back way in (road to hana) to get there. Don't worry about the roads, its 99% paved and you do not need a 4 wheel drive. You will pay $10 for parking at the National Park, but keep receipt because it will be good for 3 days and you can use... More

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
