Amazing and tough to hike, but worth the effort. We found a bamboo stick helpful in keeping our balance. Only hiked to the first two waterfalls. Lots of mud and slippery rocks. At first I felt I was going to get lost and never find my way out. Lots of trails to get confused by in getting back. Just ask... More

This was one of my Wifes favorite part of our Maui Trip and it was free! We only made it to the second waterfall and it was beautiful! The hike itself was fun, you feel like your in another world. Plenty of cars were parked outside but we rarely ran into people.

Sometimes you just want to getaway and slowdown here is a perfectly place. Located in a National Park , great day for a walk, and at the end of the trail is beautiful waterfall, picnic lunch a must. On caveat uneven terrain and when it rains (and it will) the trail can be challenging. Tip: if you get near the... More

It was quite a long hike, but glad we did it. The bamboo forest is better than the waterfall at the end, That being said, it was quite dry when we were there so there wasn't much going over the falls. It was very high but skinny. No pool at the bottom to swim in. The bamboo forest is very... More

We are avid hikers and this was a dangerous and difficult hike. The first itself it's cool, yes, but the treacherous path to the 4th waterfall is just not worth it. When we got back to our car it had been broken into and our stuff stolen. The police officer said it happens there every day.

The Bamboo Forest hike I'm reviewing is the one just past Haiku, Maui at Mile Marker #6 on Hana Highway 360. There is another Bamboo Forest near Hana as well, so just wanted to be clear on which one I am reviewing. Allow a good 3 hours for this hike if you go to the end. We did this hike... More

We are so glad we hiked into the bamboo forest and to the waterfalls. The swim and hike right through the waterfall to the last pool was well worth it! It's slippery so walk carefully. We were glad to be wearing sneakers and couldn't believe people were wearing flip flops... bare feet would even be better. We did it on... More

You can also read my review last year..... This is a bit of a challenge unless you are physically fit but it is "doable" if you are a healthy couch potato and have good shoes and proper hydration. It is two miles up the hill: 77 floors per my Fitbit. The first half of the trek is the steepest part... More

This is a beautiful hike through forests of arbutus trees, banyan trees then bamboo and finishes at a 400 foot waterfall! Depending on the time of year it can be dry or wet we just went March 20th and it was dry and easy to navigate. The highlight like others have said is the bamboo forest, we were there when... More

Well, this was a pure beauty. Really, the photos cannot describe the reality, you have to experience yourself. It is just pure nature, clean air and amazing walk among the trees in the forest. And the waterfall at the end, I mean WOW!
