I absolutely loved this hike. 4 miles total, 2 miles in and 2 miles out. A lot of steps. And I mean, A LOT. I have not worked out in months. I was huffing and puffing. I got blisters from the backs of my stupid...More

My partner and I braved the supremely annoying Road to Hana a second time specifically just to return to this area and hike the Pipiwai Trail. We had originally planned to take the Back Road to Hana, but part of the road was closed, so...More

We enjoyed this hike, but I'm not sure I would do it again. For starters, we didn't do our research to know that the Road to Hana is what it is. (600 hairpin turns, anyone??) We wanted to do the hike because it was so...More

Great day hike. The bamboo forest is super cool. The waterfall is worth the hike. Lots of parking if you get there earlier in the day. We arrived at the park around 9:30 am. Well worth the drive past Hana.

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....More

We did not encounter any mosquitoes personally but they do exist on Maui, especially on the Hana side. They tend to be more active in the early morning and early evening.
