Pipiwai Trail & Waimoku Falls

Overview

Overview: A favorite Maui hike, yet for some people the drive to the trailhead alone is excitement enough. The Hana Highway is sixty miles of scenic but curvy coastal road, reportedly featuring 620 curves and 59 bridges, most of which are single-lane bridges. If you relish your driving experiences then the Hana Highway alone is a “must-do”.

The 4 mile round trip to the falls and back takes in several great waterfalls before reaching the spectacular Waimoku Falls, and a boardwalk journey through dense, dark bamboo forest that you’re unlikely to forget.

Tips:

• We strongly recommend an early start if you want to make good time on the Hana Highway.
• The hike route is prone to flash flooding, so be aware of the weather forecast and do not attempt the hike under threat of rain.
• As with all Hawaii hikes we recommend footwear with good grip, since the terrain can get a little slippy & muddy.
• The fee to use this park is valid for several days and allows you to explore the Haleakala crater on the same pass – check out our Crater Trail Guide for more details.

In my opinion this is the best trail of Maui! Goes through a beautiful bamboo forest, a very cool place. Is located inside the national park, about 30 minutes after Hana. Worth it.
