It is definitely worth it as long as you stay ahead of the crowds. In some places it was absolutely magic. I recommend going really early in the morning if you don't have kids and just want to enjoy it without loud tourists.

Only writing this review to note to travelers that there are TWO distinct bamboo forests. I was confused about this when I went last week: -first is at the beginning of road to Hana and about 20 minutes past Twin Falls. Cannot miss it. Park along side of road. This is amazing and totally worth it if you do not... More

Just minutes past Twin Falls Farmstand is a Bamboo Forest. Steps from your car you will be lost in the lush green giant bamboo. A couple of waterfalls are within 20 minutes. It can be muddy and slippery after rain.

This is one of the best spots in Maui and on the rod to Hana. It is past Hana town and I think that's why most people skip it or don't know about it but it is worth the extra drive. It is so beautiful, not too far of a hike and a lot cooler than higher you go. One... More

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
