The entry to the Forest of Hana highway is not marked. We were looking for it but after talking to locals we ended up not going. We were told that it is private property so we should not be going there and the road there gets bad and fire trucks come out to rescue someone there every week. Again, if... More

Has to be my favorite hike so far. Walking through all the bamboo then stopping at the waterfalls was great fun. Can be very slippery when raining, don't wear flip flops if you're planning on going up to number three and four waterfall. Nice little pools to get in and relax. The rope and then ladder were a bit tough... More

Our second time at mile marker 6.5 Bamboo Hike and it was as wonderful as we remembered. Perfect semi-"Road to Hana" adventure as it is only a few miles off on the drive. It was so great to drive past all the parked cars at Twin Falls and have the hike all to ourselves. The challenges are slippery mud post... More

Interesting hike, but we only went to the first waterfall because we had very small children with us and the cliff to climb up to go further on was too much for them. What we did see was worth the drive there.

I just got back from Maui and enjoyed this FANTASTIC hike! It starts in a huge bamboo forrest and then follows the river upstream past two waterfalls (ropes and ladders) and then there's a 100 yard swim and another small waterfall culminating in a pool with a fourth waterfall that soars over 100 feet. Truly amazing! However, there seems to... More

Half the fun is in getting there! First, you drive the Hana Highway. “It’s curvy” all the brochures warn. They also say, “Plan to spend the day. Stay over if you can.” This is good advice. The actual distance to Hana is only about 50 miles from Kahului, but its 59 bridges (46 are one lane) and 620 curves make... More

Please advised that you will not be able to hike through the Bamboo Forest at Oheo Gulch until the Government shutdown is over. We thought the parking lot would be closed but didn't think they would be guarding the trails. They were. So if you want to go to a Bamboo Forest go to the other one in between mile... More

We pulled over and started our hike through the bamboo forest. We don't hike much, but we were able to get through it so I think most people can. Just wear the proper hiking sandles that can get wet. Just beautiful towering bamboo and you will be rewared with the waterfall and pool at the end.

The Bamboo Forest was so beautiful and worth taking the hike. I have amazing photos! Definitely a must do while visiting Maui! Wear lots of mosquito repellent!

Best Hike on Maui...so much fun...but not for someone out of shape or has balance issues. Directions were tricky...it's between the 6 and 7 mileage marker (Hana Hwy) on the right while headed towards Hana. You'll have to park on the side of the road...we went on a Sunday...come early as it may be impossible to park close. The opening... More
