Trail was closed up top, but still a good hike

The only issue I had with this hike was the fact that you did not know the trail was closed up top until you already paid to park and went to the map. I wish they could have said... read more

My family did this hike and really enjoyed it. Kids are 11 and 14 and had no problem. We are not super athletic people and still enjoyed the hike. The waterfall is beautiful, and the bamboo forrest was magical. Be sure to stop here and do this hike. It was nice to get out of the car and stretch our... More

The only issue I had with this hike was the fact that you did not know the trail was closed up top until you already paid to park and went to the map. I wish they could have said something before. The trail was supposed to have been closed after the bamboo forest. When a ranger was asked about the... More

If you're undecided about whether to do a hike while you visit Ohe'o Gulch, stop being indecisive and do this one! It's an easy trek and totally worth it! I love the sound of the bamboo clicking and clapping together in the bamboo forest, I'd never been in a bamboo forest before Maui so it was a very neat experience.... More

worth the hike to waterfall at the end of the trail - absolutely breathtaking scenery! The trail is a challenging hike uphill with lots of rocks and roots but doable for an average person. Make you give yourself enough time to complete -

Take your water bottle and some snacks and camera. Wear Mosquito repellent as the deep, shady area further down the trail is full of Mosquitoes. Theres a beautifulhuge tree on the way that is a stopping point for many people for picture. There are many waterfalls, but the hike to the big one was closed today. Theres a permitted swimming...

I had read about this hike before coming to Maui and really wanted to make time to do it and I'm so glad we did. It was so beautiful! It's a very easy hike but be cautious if it's rained a lot as you will cross a stream right before arriving at the biggest waterfall at the end of the... More

The prize and the end of the long road to Hana and beyond is definitely the Pipiwai Trial and Ohe'o Gulch. The Pipiwai trail hike was easy for the whole family with some amazing photos to be taken along the way. Unfortunately the day we went the trail up the the waterfall was closed so we couldn't do the full... More

Easy hike with some nice views of the pools, ocean, waterfalls and bamboo forests. The trail was closed just after the bamboo forest when we visited so we weren't able to make it up to the top to see the biggest waterfall.

Okay, for mobile phone reviewers who will only get a brief portion of my review, let me cut to the chase--if you do nothing else on Maui, walk the Pipiwai Trail, so you can see the Bamboo Forest, but for heaven's sake, wear proper shoes, and don't start out already exhausted from having spent all day on the road to...

Amazing place. Definitely worth to try if you have time. This trail is full of surprises and fun all the way up. First, you will greet with the old banyan tree. This tree is most amazing thing. Then , you will walk through guava trees, if you are in right season, you can enjoy the guavas! Then beautiful bamboo forest... More
