A Beautiful Experience but the trip there is a dosey!

The bamboo forest is a wonderful and beautiful experience. This is such a great trip. However you must deal with the Road to Hana to get there. In fact the Road to Hana is mild in... read more

The bamboo forest is a wonderful and beautiful experience. This is such a great trip. However you must deal with the Road to Hana to get there. In fact the Road to Hana is mild in comparison to the road beyond Hana to the National Park which contains the Pipiwai Trail. Just hold on to your hat and pass out... More

This is a moderate hike and you'll need water. I loved the changing scenery, especially the huge banyan tree and the bamboo forest. While going through the bamboo, it's super cool to listen to them clank as they hit each other when the wind blows. There is a fence/gated area near the start of the hike, that a few people... More

My husband and I visited Pipiwai trail on our road the Hana adventure. It was a really nice hike. It took about 1 hour up and 40 minutes down ( in our late 20's). There were people of all ages kids included. So much variation in one walk. I would definitely recommend this walk. The sacred pools were closed for... More

We are seniors and found the walk moderate and advise wearing good footwear. The trail leads to Waimoku Falls and along the way, we walked through very tall bamboo. The trail is easy to follow. Bring water, plan lots of time to relax at the falls. People are courteous and let faster hikers pass and they wait for hikers while... More

I will never forget the sounds of the bamboo clacking in the wind; the 400 ft. waterfall was very impressive; and I appreciated the parts of the walk that were like a boardwalk and the beautiful bridges and waterfalls along the way. It took twice as long as we expected so depending on your hiking style you might want to... More

This trail is not hard; I would say easy to moderate; a bit long, but worth every step. You'll be rewarded with a beautiful waterfall at the end! Don't rush though, because the hike to the waterfall is just as great; it goes thru a bamboo forest and you'll also see a giant, Banyan tree, on the way there. Take... More

A bit more work than I expected but well worth it. Bamboo forest was amazing, as was the waterfall at the end.

Between the banyan tree, bamboo forest and waterfall you can't go wrong. It took us 2 hours and we were a bit drained by the end. A note for those with bum knees is that it hurts. There are quite a few steps which are harder for me than just walking a flat incline so just keep that in mind.... More
