We did this hike at around 12 noon and were wishing we had gotten there a little earlier. By the time, we were coming back down from the hike, the trail was pretty crowded. Beautiful changes in scenery and waterfalls. It was well worth the long drive and the hike up. At the top, you are rewarded with an amazing... More

This hike takes you through so many different and diverse environments. So don't miss. The water fall at the end is breathtaking. GO EARLY or you'll have to share the falls with a high school group like me. Bamboo forest is almost surreal and amazing. Massive Banyan tree is incredible. Words are hard to describe this hike. Be prepared... Good... More

The forest was especially interesting just to hear the abmboo and walk through on the boardwalk.the waterfall at the end is lovely. This is the reason to come to this side of Haeakala!

U must go this hike. It's bit rough but it's worth every step of it. Once u get to the bamboo forest you realize why.

One of the best hiking trails we've ever done. Variety in scenery from jungle to bamboo forest, with numerous beautiful waterfalls along the way. The last waterfall is definitely worth the trip, have never seen such a waterfall in my life. The drive is also very pretty and full of great views whether coming from the west or the east.... More

Very beautiful trail with bamboo forests during the second half of the trail. You get to the first waterfall in 0.5 miles.. don't stop there. You will go through couple of walking bridges with a good view of small water falls and finally a breathtaking view of Wailua waterfall... 4 miles round trip - took 90 minutes for us -... More

The trail was treacherous due to slippery, mucky mud. Several people fell and everyone was muddy. The hiking pace was very, very slow due to trail conditions. The first waterfall was beautiful; we turned around before reaching the 2nd waterfall. The banyan tree was interesting as well. It's always been muddy when we've visited (Dec/Jan). We need to return in... More

Rewarded you will be on this moderate hike. Wear hiking shoes, as it was slippery and muddy in December. 4 mile round trip, Plan for 3 to 4 hours at a comfortable pace with time to stop for photos and sight seeing. It was a long drive to get to this trail, so if you are coming from Kaanapali, plan... More
