Beautiful and easy hike to discover a beautiful Bamboo Forest. Unfortunately, the fall at the end of this trail was closed on our day. Nevertheless, we enjoyed the hike. There are many little waterfalls here.

Unless you are unfit or injured, make the hike to this forest! Seriously one of the coolest things I have ever done, seen or heard. Visually stunning but the sound the bamboo make when the breeze blows the sticks together is also awesome. Keep going to the waterfall for an incredibly memorable experience. Allow 3 hours for the whole hike... More

It's about a 1.5 Mile walk up to the bamboo forest which is just amazing. Our daughter and son-in-law backpacked/ ergo their 5 month old son and 2 year old daughter all the way to the falls -leaving from the N.P visitors center to the falls it's 2 miles one way. The 5 month old stared at the top of... More

Quite the reward after driving the Road to Hana. Be sure to hike up to the Bamboo Forest (beware: it's a moderate hike), it's definitely worth it! (Even though at the end of it we were greeted with "Trail Closed" because the path to the falls after it was dangerous.)

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.
