Great "off the beaten path" spot for cliff jumping.

Absolutely gorgeous views. Relatively flat hike/walk, but you definitely need to pay attention to where your walking with the uneven rocks.

A stunning hike. Parking is $25 (credit card only) but that buys you a three day pass to Haleakalā National Park, including the summit. If you have a National park pass or military ID, bring it for free admission. We arrived by around 12:00 and seemed to have beaten the crowd. The lot was packed by the time we were heading out, and the trail seemed to be getting pretty congested on the way down. After passing one dry waterfall half way in, we were worried that the higher falls would be dry also. They were not. Keep going — it’s worth it.

It’s not good right now, best time to go not in the winter. We went December 4, 2018. River is out off control, too much rain. You won’t be able to swim or get across. It’s dirty brown water raging rolling down. Upper water fall is closed. Tourists r everywhere it’s not good!

Nice walk to waterfall and swimming! Easy for most people, walk through stream with current but fairly easy.

Amazing beach, walk along cliff path to the secluded cove with great swimming!

10 out of 10 - would recommend!!!!!! Definitely opt for the swim at the end! (You need to be a moderate swimmer) The last waterfall makes the entire hike worth it all!! Got muddy and wet from head to toe so don’t bring anything you don’t mind carrying with you. Would recommend a waterproof backpack if you want to bring your phone or water/snacks.

One of the best hikes in Maui! Go past the sign and go all the way to the fall! Completely worth it!

We went this trail when it was raining a lot but it was still very beautiful trail! There are few waterfalls along the way, you go through bamboo forest and there is so big and beuatiful tree on the way! The waterfall in the end is huge and amazing. Definitely worth it!

The way to the first waterfall is muddy so be prepared. In total, there are four waterfalls. When you are at the first one (very nice btw), go left and continue to the second one. There is a swing you can jump from to the water, so enjoy it! You can continue further on the left side (you have to climb a ladder). I was not sure what was the third waterfall because there were two small along the way. To the fourth one, you have to jump into the water and swim a bit. It is definitely worth the adventure!

Thank you to many who posted about this hike. I had picked a different hike, woke at 2:00 am. Read your reviews. We woke in the morning and I told my wife ,”Change of plans!! This was by far the best hike we have done ... the bamboo, ponds waterfalls EVERYTHING!! ALL TRAILS best app I have. We live in Vancouver BC use it there all the time. Been to Australia, used it there. Been to Indonesia, Bali and yup!! Used it there In New Zealand, used it to hike Rangitoto Island. We took trails no one else knew about (on that day)
Thank you all keep posting. People read and make decision based on your feed back !!!

Very nice trail. Wonderful scenery, view on the ocean so blue.

Very nice trail in a nice forest. No view on scenery, though.

The entrance is a small hole in the vegetation. Very muddy and very steep: not recomanded in rubber slipper. Pretty.

Solid, beautiful, easy if ya want or it can challenge you. My Uncle Tom tells me to this day that he calls this trail pumpkin pie, cause it’s always so sweet.

A must do on the road to Hana!

One of the most amazing experiences of my life! Walking around the lush Maui forest in the rain through a massive Banyan tree, waterfalls, a bamboo forest that sounded like music az it swayed in the wind and rain, all kinds of Eucalyptus, including Rainbow Gum, which is my favorite.

There are steep areas, wet and slippery areas, and lots of mud so come prepared. Many areas are not accessible.

I’ve done this hike in 2014 and 2016. It goes through a cool bamboo forest and leads to a final waterfall. It is usually moderately crowded. The drive on the Road to Hana is half the fun, but I’d say don’t miss the cool side hikes. This is one I’d plan on doing bc it’s Haleakala National Park at the end of the road as a last stop before where most people turn back with their rental cars.

Love this trail! Hiked to the falls with my grandson on my back. We both really enjoyed the trek. Diverse terrain, scenic views, and bamboo forests.

Lots of great scenery and not too strenuous. Bamboo forest section is awesome. Will likely want water shoes for the last bit to get to the base of the falls

My wife and I were only able to get to the bamboo forest before time constraints made us turn back around. Definitely worth it up to that point though! A beautiful waterfall with an even better one at the end (as seen in pictures) and the bamboo forest is like another world! Really cool looking tree in between the first waterfall and bamboo, like something from a fantasy movie!

Gorgeous colors, breathtaking views. Small black sand beach where you can take a dip, as well as areas to camp (permit required). Was a bit crowded on the beach, but the trail was great. Must see!

Absolutely one of the best hikes on Maui. You can go to the base of a 400 foot waterfall after walking through a bamboo forest. Just difficult and long enough to make it interesting, but not too taxing. Don’t miss doing it if you visit Maui.

Hard to follow trail but we made it to the falls. We were unfortunately caught in some intense rain and so it was very slippery.

Great trail, good for kids, absolutely beautiful! Wish you could go closer to waterfall at the end, but still a great view. Super hot and humid, bring plenty of water. Bamboo forest was very cool too. Gorgeous area.

I loved this trail. I think the first ten minutes is the most challenging. If you count from car to actual waterfall ... even thought you are not supposed to go past the sign. it’s closer to four miles round trip. Most likely you will get a little mud and depending on the rain forecast you will have to go through two to four shallow streams. Your feet will get wet. I did this with my three year old 36 pound toddler on my back. It was a great beautiful trail. Don’t forget the bug spray! Mosquitos the entire trip.

Great hike, bamboo forest is amazing and waterfall is amazing. Give yourself about an hour and a half to two hours. Make sure you go all the way to the end to see the waterfall. And bring a Camera. Accurately rated as moderate, not too strenuous. Loved it.

Nice to see and we are happy that we did it but nothing special. Very easy walk.
