Pipiwai Trail was one of the highlights for my road to hana day trip. The hike was not tough, but it could take up to 3 hours with time for photo. (lady at gate told us 45 mins one way, but it felt like it would be just hike no time for photo). Bamboo forest was very nice. Most people huddled at the start of the bamboo forest for photos, but it's actually quite long, so plenty of room and time to take photos throughout. Must put LOTs of mosquito repellent on! I had at least 10 bites on my legs and arms!!! You also get to see a few different types of tress throughout the whole trail which was nice. Waterfall at the end was......a waterfall....so overall..not too bad, but go earlier on (their recommended time was go before 3:30 because it does get dark by 6)

The trail is located in Haleakalā National Park (HNP). It costs 25$ per vehicle. So if you plan to go to HNP summit for sunrise or sunset, I recommend you to get annual pass 80$. Then you can access to all national parks or landmarks. We started to do the trail around 10am. It was hot but you don’t feel the heat coz most parts of the trail have shade. We made all the way to Waikamoi Falls. (The sign warns you not to access to the falls but if you sense it is safe enough you can do it.) Fabulous and stunning view.! Along the way you will see lots of wild flowers and guava. We picked some ripe guava. Definitely this is my favorite trail in Hawaï.
The trail was slippery and steep at some points so it is the best to bring hiking boots or sneakers at least. Don’t forget bug spray and water!

FOOD/DRINKS: None available.
RESTROOMS: yes! Restrooms easy to find: Yes, by visitor center; Go before hike. No restrooms on the hiking trail.
COST: $25 per car. Unless you already bought a national park pass from seeing haleakala crater/summit recently.
PARKING: Good amount of free parking!
WORTH IT: YES!!
LENGTH OF TIME spent here: total hike time: 1 hr, 30 mins. About 4 miles RT. We found bamboo walking sticks next to the trail. We picked up two and used them the whole way. It was helpful with the uneven ground.
Perfect time of day to go: Before 6pm when it gets dark.
For Kids/Couples: Kids would probably get bored hiking that long, unless you are carrying them the whole way.
WALKING/STAIRS: Easy to moderate uphill hiking. Ground is very uneven and wet most of the trail. Plenty of rocks/stairs. Not wheelchair accessible.
Most of the trail is very well shaded, so I didn’t wear sunscreen.
BRING: Plenty of water, snacks, sneakers, camera.

If you made it to Hana and you are at all interested in the nature of Hawaii then this is a must stop. Best to do first thing in the morning after spending the night in Hana. Its not that hard of a hike but make sure you have good balance and be prepared for the occasional shower.
