incredible views along entire hike. good elevation gain, a little slippery at spots, wear good hiking shoes with tread. would not recommend to do hike in or after big rain

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

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.

Given that we’ve heard this was one of the “must see” sights in Maui, it was a bit shy of a 5 star experience. This loop is short and flat, but it is beautiful. In any other locale, it would be stunning. It’s currently $25 for vehicle parking (credit card only), but that buys you a three-day pass for Haleakalā National Park, including the summit area. If you have a national park pass, don’t leave it in your hotel.

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!

Beautiful view. Love this trail.

Love this trail..... panoramic ocean views for most of it.... Great rocky climb.... 1500 ft elevation gain in a mere 2.35 miles.... I do it in trail runners no prob.... you may wanna utilize a more substantial boot however

Hard core bouldering. Did okay with my heavy treaded vibram five’s. started about 7:30am which gave the ascent some good shade. glad i did, the decent back to the car was hot as sh!t. Enjoying a cider from maui brewing after. Amazing hike.

Not sure I would qualify this as a hike. interesting little valley with some interesting history. A good quick stop on your way to/from somewhere. Warning, parking fees in effect unless you can park along the toad. before you enter the site.

My favorite trail in Maui. Reasonably challenging with outstanding views of East Maui. Hiking shoes /boots recommended, definitely not a flip flop hike.

a nice hike, lots of elevation and a killer view. if the trail gets wet it is pretty slippery on the way down so essential footware is key

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!

Hard hike, lots of rock climbing and no shade. Nice view of water but no big view when you get to top. Bring lots of water!!! We ran out

Great trail. Beautiful views. I went early and was the only person on the trail until I was part of the way back down.

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!

Amazing hike! It is recommended to go in the morning because there is a better chance there won't be any clouds. Well, we are quite sleepers so started around 11am. On the way up, there were no clouds. When we were going down, clouds just started surrounding us and it was beautiful! many beautiful view, the path is in a good shape... higly recommended!

Almost made it all the way. It was a great hike. Definitely needs to be done in the early morning. Loved seeing the windmills so close. If we was here longer I’d do it again and make it all the way

Nice hike! Used to hiking the rocky mountains so was an elevation gain but nothing too crazy. Still got in a great workout though. Beautiful views. Took us just a little over an hour up (with picture stops) and about 45 down. Could be muddy if it rained but wasn’t bad for us.

Very good trail. Awsome view. Bring water and good shoes. I’m a medium level sport fan and found it hard but finished it happy

Super short and easy paved trail. Drive to the park is scenic. Parking costs $5. Park just outside the gates to save cash. Iao needle is pretty neat and the creek is cool as well. Good for a short little visit.

Second time to do it! It was a windy and cloudy day with lots of mud from yesterday’s raining I guess. It’s nice to enjoy the view during the hiking. It’s absolutely a must-do in Maui if you love to workout a little bit

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 !!!

Lovely trail, excellent views. The most challenging aspect of it is the elevation gain, but if you have a lot of hiking experience, I definitely wouldn't rate it as moderate. It's a good trail for less experienced individuals or those just getting into hiking!

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