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

Found this spot via Pinterest. Stopped by and had a great time taking pictures. Would love to hear the back story on this bamboo forest.

If you do one hike in Maui, this is the one. Make sure you go swim in at least one of the three waterfalls past the stream. Absolutely refreshing!

Worth stopping, and probably a lot cooler than what we experienced due to the flooding. Access is hard to find, and the hiking can be tricky (especially when muddy). Secure your vehicle well-- we were cautioned of frequent break-ins, evidenced with plenty of broken glass...More

If it's not too rainy you may be okay but can be very muddy which can also make it very slippery! But it is absolutely gorgeous. Make sure to go all the way to the waterfall and enjoy the cool refreshing water or just sit...More

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.

Yes. We saw children much younger than 8 on the hike. However, I think about 6 would be the youngest I would take on the hike.
