“Amazing yet easy”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

One of the must sees on the Road to Hana. I guess it took us around 2.5 hours round trip. The hike is moderate towards the easier side. I am sure when the path is dry it would be really easy, just long though. When we went it felt as if we are walking on chocolate cake batter lol. I wore my Chacos and he wore his flip-flops(not recommended). I wouldn't say he regretted but it would have been MUCH more comfy in a pair of good grip hiking sandals like mine were. We went up to the waterfalls, which had become very very angry due to the rains. For once I am so glad it was raining while we did the road to Hana as most places became surreal due to the magnitude and force of the water.....the bamboo forests looked lush green. Beautiful!

BTW, the stream before the water falls had multiplied by 2. So basically instead of one we had to cross 2. Also the ankle deep water had risen to thigh high by the time we turned back. Glad we did do it though. Am attaching before after pics of one of the streams we crossed.

“Be prepared”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

This is a fun outing on Maui but be prepared to get dirty. As mentioned before this place is very poorly marked so go with someone who knows the area or get a good map and advice from someone who knows it also the road to it is basically one lane so prepare for some crazy driving. Once you get into the area though it is cool and it was a great time adventuring around but again it is very easy to get lost in the forest area so be prepared.

This is a great component of the Pipiwai trail on your way up to the falls. Pay the $10 to park in the Haleakala State Park parking lot and start from there. We came through right as the breeze picked up and all of the bamboo was 'knocking' around - it sounded like a really cool wind chime.

“A lot of Fun”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

The hike through the forest is a work out at times but the end result with the ba,boo and the water falls is breathtaking. Be prepared with tennis shoes for the hike and water to drink. Bring a good camera, the pictures you can get are fabulous.
