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
It is about two miles one way and most of it can be muddy and rocky. There is not a decked path until you get about 3/4 of the way there. I will say the Bamboo forest is pretty amazing and the waterfalls at the...More
Beautiful hike to see the waterfalls!! The first part of the trail is through the woods and is approximately one mile. Shortly after you pass the huge banyan tree you'll enter the bamboo forest, which was amazing! And then you end at the waterfalls, which...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.
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...More
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

If you are driving to Hana, the road is easy to drive and very safe, there are guardrails and it is well paved. There is a small section of highway south of Hana that is a bit narrower and more rugged - though if you are used to mountain driving it is easy, just a bit tighter when passing. I am not sure what the 360 is like if you come up the other way though.
Definitely not a same day type trip.. Road to Hana will take one full day..with minimal stops before hiking the Pipiwai trail. IF I were to do this again I would drive straight to the trail do the the hike then make the... More
Definitely not a same day type trip.. Road to Hana will take one full day..with minimal stops before hiking the Pipiwai trail. IF I were to do this again I would drive straight to the trail do the the hike then make the sightseeing stops on the way back.. they crowds would have thinned out by then and you wont be driving that road in the dark like we did :)
