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

One of the best hikes anywhere! Not for young kids. Hike all the falls and take your swim suite. Can be muddy and very slippery if there was a recent rain. You will climb some tricky spots to make it to the top. Very adventurous....More

Insects are there so please wear full pants. Apart from that it beautiful, quite a bit of trek. Roadside parking, multiple entry points, we got lost trying to find the waterfall. But was fun. A bit slippery so wear good shoes.

We went with friends who had done the hike before so they knew the route and the dangers! It is not for the feint hearted! Whilst unbelievably beautiful you need to make sure you wear the right footwear and don’t mind getting muddy or wet....More

We had a guide take us and it depends where on the Island you are staying. We were staying at Lahaina so it took us a good few hours. we stopped along the way and did things before hand.

They are fairly easy but narrow in parts and can get muddy depending on the weather.

It's right away. You're surrounded by bamboo. That's what you walk through to reach the water.
