This was an awesome hike. You don't have to travel all the way to Hana to go on a beautiful waterfall hike. But you will need the right shoes (do not wear flip flops), and you will need to be an experienced hiker, or adventurer...More

We walked through it under a rain for a few hours, bare feet and wearing only swimtrunks because it was so muddy and wet. The exciting part was to come to the open pools and swim in them - what a great reward for wandering...More

Bamboo Forest is a must see stop on Road to Hana. Very limited parking spaces on the side of the road but the view, the scenery will make you WOW! Trail to the falls is a bit rough and steep but manageable.

A must see! You will find the Bamboo forest in Haiku, Maui at Mile Marker #6 on Hana Highway 360. This review is only about the forest as I haven´t done the hike. I loved the forest as the bamboo sticks are massive :) You...More

This is a review of Bamboo Forest and the waterfalls that are closest to the airport (not Hana). The hike is probably an hour and a half round trip with lots of wet/muddy pathways, wet rocks, and boulders. Definitely recommend wearing closed toe shoes over...More

We hiked through the Bamboo Forest found on the Pipiwai Trail in the Kipahulu section of Haleakala National Park. It seems there is another hike through a bamboo forest at an earlier stop along the road to Hana. The national park is found 9.5 miles...More

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...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...More

We have a day planned in February to leave from Wailea at noon (due to a work conference.. already darting out early!) to try to go to the bamboo forest/Gulch/Pipiwai Trail area. I know the drive is roughly 3-4 hours if we take the "front side" road to Hana. We will be exploring until sunset it sounds like. My questions: Is there a "closing time" to the Haleakala Park entrances? Is a an unreasonable/guaranteed unpleasant idea to travel back to Wailea in the dark on the front side of the road to Hana? Is traffic bad headed out of Hana after dark, or lighter due to tour buses already gone for the day? (I'll also probably check the "back side" road conditions a day or two before our mid-Feb trip to see if the daylight portion of our noon trip to the forest could be accomplished from this direction. Aware of rental car issues, etc.) Thanks for any thoughts. Want a pleasant day and up for a challenge but not up for a trip-ruining traffic nightmare.

No, can't be done in an hour. Allow a minimum of 2 hours. In my opinion, the Bamboo Forest + waterfalls is NOT the "side trip" of Hana, it is the DESTINATION FOCUS of Hana, and it not to be missed. Personally, it believe... More
