Man-O Man..... What an adventure! The hike is more than a novice hike, you need to be a lil sure footed but what an outcome. All along the way you are mesmerized by the sites, views and sounds. The Bamboo is rich in color and soothing to the ears. Then a lil further past the bamboo, you come to the... More

After hearing from 2 locals that this was a great adventure while on Maui, we decided to go for it. YES! Totally worth the mud and dirt to see the beauty and peacefulness of the Forest. However, it was going up and beyond first waterfall that was the best. You have to scale a rock wall utilizing a rope (fun... More

Well its a bit of a walk to get to the Bamboo forest but worth every step. This place is just amazing, the sound of the bamboo in the wind is so peaceful. And the water fall at the end of the walk was breath taking. If i ever get a chance to go back to maui i would always... More

Planned to come here while still in England! Tour company didn't really give enough time to see it so had to run 4 miles but definitely worth it.

This was not what I expected. It's rough terrain. Incredibly beautiful ! Several hours in to see the waterfall - rocky walkways and the occasional flowing river that you need to walk a crossed. This has not been "Disney-fied" it's real nature. Wear the right gear, shoes bring snacks and enough to drink. On our way our seeing the tourist... More

We enjoyed our afternoon here. The bamboo was beautiful and made a wonderful sound in the wind. It was very tall and seemed mysterious.

At the end of the Road to Hana is a most beautiful bamboo forest. The bamboo is so dense at times that you can't see through it. If you stay in Hana, you will beat the tours and tourists that are coming all the way down the road. Go early regardless. Take a rain poncho more to cover your camera... More

My wife isn't really a hiker, so it was like pulling teeth to get her up to where the bamboo started. In all fairness, she tried to be a good sport, but hiking is not her thing. I thought I'd never hear the end of it. Considering you see pictures of the bamboo forest in every gift shop on the... More

To clarify, this review is for the Bamboo Forest that is part of the Na'ili'ili Haele Stream & Waterfalls. NOT for the paid bamboo forest. The hike is off the Road to Hana between mile markers 6 and 7 (NOT the location as designated by Trip Advisor maps on this page). You should see cars pulled off to the side... More
