Great family hike. It's at Haleakala National park. Mostly flat in the actual bamboo forest part but lots on incline on the way. Be sure to go all the way through to get to the waterfall. Totally worth the hike. Was a bit muddy earlier...More

So everyone tells you that if you are going to do the Road to Hana, it is so worth the extra ~40 minute drive to the end of the line at the Halekala National Park. The Pipiwei (sp) trail was the highlight of the whole...More

For those of us not from the tropics this was quite impressive. Loved being small in the forest of bamboo! Part of the hike to the waterfall. $25 fee to park in the NP to get on the trail.

2 hours round trip hike which is easy enough to do - especially if it's a dry day. Wear decent shoes. Saw someone doing it shoeless though - to each their own. Something to witness. The sound is so peaceful.

Your first challenge will be finding where the hike starts. Once you're on the Hana Highway, pay attention to the mile markers. You'll find the Bamboo Forest trail at the 6.5 mile point, just after the East Maui Irrigation Co. but before the large colourful...More

Those attractions are on the Big Island, not Maui. And it would depend on where you are staying. Akaka Falls, when we were there, was just a stop with quick walk to see the falls, and that's it. Volcanos National Park can... More
