After Twin Falls, but still convenient to the rest of the island, this hike gives you the feel of Hana side waterfall hikes without all the downtime of driving to and fro. In addition, there’s the thick stands of young bamboo that offer a dark respite from the over-bearing Maui sun. Almost the whole hike is shaded. After Twin Falls, pull over when you see the next bunch of parked cars. The parking space furthest east fits three cars, and here at the trailhead is an enticing waterfall pool, as pictured, that you’ll probably have all to yourself, 30 seconds from the road. But, if you insist on hiking, it’s a twenty minute walk to the next pool, larger, below a small triple falls. Here you can spread out among the rocks. Find a flat one and have a picnic. Although these are not the most impressive falls on this side of the island, convenience makes up for it, and it’s mostly locals, since tourists have so many more miles to cover if their ultimate destination is Kinabalu. In other words, it’s a great morning off, or afternoon destination.

The bamboo forest was cool to me because of the sounds it makes in the wind. Although, it probably doesn't even crack my top 10 favorite things on the Pipiwai Trail alone... that's how amazing the hike is. Also, an FYI to readers and reviewers, there are several photos posted on this Trip Advisor POI which are NOT from this location and are instead from the Bamboo Forest located more towards the beginning of the Road to Hana, near mile marker 8 and just before the Garden of Eden Arboretum. Those pictures show the rainbow trees, hikers crossing a piece of plank wood, and wide open pools where the water isn't really flowing.

Nice place where you can spend 30 minutes walking in the middle of thousands of bamboo threes and crossing creeks, but do not miss very close to it the Rainbow eucalyptus

My wife and I were lucky to be able to hike the Pīpīwai Trail before everything was closed due to the Coronavirus. The bamboo forest is halfway to the Waimoku Falls (a solid one mile to here). To hike to the bamboo forest requires a fair amount of effort and in so requires you to be in decent shape. You know when you get there as you walk over a bridge by a waterfall and enter a “tunnel” of bamboo...very cool. From there you will hike through a fair amount of the bamboo forest before continuing on to the falls. I would recommend attempting the hike and also to take breaks as you need to on the flat or scenic spots.

The hike up to Waimoku Falls was well worth it. The falls themselves are quite dramatic, and the bamboo forest you walk through (after a mile or so) was amazing, with bamboo close to 60' high. On the day we went it was rather breezy, and that may have kept down the mosquitoes (we encountered none) but I'm guessing that's not the usual case. The entire hike took nearly 3 hours, so only do this if you're staying in Hana overnight (which you should do anyway)!
