Hana, Hawaii Map

After paying the National Park entrance/parking fee of $20, I was disappointed to find out that the whole area is closed except for a view from the trail. The overgrown path down to the falls area is closed by a locked gate and fence and is impassable even if you are willing to break the law to get there. After 10 days without any rain, the falls was barely visible. But the road is often closed after any rains, due to downed trees and rockslides, so it you ever get to see it in full flow with falls access, you are EXTREMELY LUCKY!

There is a small trail just behind a rock wall used as a make-shift fruit stand. You have to go around the back of the fruit stand or go over the wall to a small narrow trail down a path, through a cattle gate with a warning sign and through a field. It ends in a small 'launching' area where the brave/foolish can jump up to 60 feet into a lagoon. This seems like a favorite local spot for a 'rite of passage'/ human sacrifice with steep and narrow paths over slippery cliffs down to the water. If younger, I definitely would have tried the 60ft jump for bragging rights, but realistically, you could also die. Check it out if this is appealing.

Gorgeous hike with moderate incline mixed with flat areas through bamboo forests. Multiple waterfalls, all running pretty low from lack of water. The waterfall at the top though not overwhelming in its size is beautiful. Muddy/wet in only a couple areas. The raised walkways through the bamboo get a little slick even when not wet so be mindful of that. Overall a beautiful hike, nice shade coverage with the foliage.

Chill. Not really a hike.

Breathtaking view of the waterfall once you finish the 2 mile trail. Bamboo forest over you most of the way up provide great shade. Humidity is your enemy and make sure you bring enough bug spray!

This trail is an easy-moderate hike along a mostly-shades, well-maintained path. The forest is beautiful! We crossed two bridges and passed thru a bamboo forest as well that had planks you can walk along. This short hike is worth every step because once you get to Waimoku Falls, it’s standing 400 ft height is so glorious! Have fun!

Nice, easy and varied trail which doesn’t take up too much time. An array of environments are on offer from rocky stairs with slight elevation to giant bamboo and the most ancient Banyan Tree I’ve ever seen! Many photo opportunities on this trail with 2 major waterfalls, the first of which you’ll see only 10 minutes in. Keep going and you’ll get to the second and last waterfall which is accessible across a small stream. A most enjoyable hike which i’d rate as easy rather than moderate. Have fun!

Incredible way to end our journey at toad to Hana. Hike goes through muddy trails, bamboo forest and is well maintained, about 4 total miles out and back

Nice, well maintained trail within Haleakala Natl Park. Seems to be a popular hike among those going to Hana. I would rate it moderate as there are a lot of rocks and tree roots, trail can get slick in some areas and there is some elevation. Our family of 6 did this hike in December (kids 18, 16, 13, 9). My usually whiny 9 year old did great on this one. Trail is shaded and there are a lot of distractions. If you're not going to do the whole thing, at least get to the bamboo forest, it's spectacular. Waterfall is beautiful and we might have seen it up close. Chose to do this hike after 2 dry days so trail was dried out & so we could cross the creek at the end and get close.

Fun Cave experience. Wish we could of kept going into Haleakala or to the coast through the cave. Permit required

The hike was easy with many light rock scrambling. Bring bug spray if you end up here late in the late afternoon. The hike was totally worth it and the view was awesome.

I want to give it 5 stars because it’s a great hike but it’s too crowded. Beautiful water falls and awesome bamboo forest.

Easy walk to see such beauty. Best on sunny day

This is a beautiful trail that takes the traveler through Maui's beautiful jungle. The bamboo forest is SUPER cool. The bridges provide opportunities for excellent photographs. The waterfalls along the way and at the end are beautiful as well. As with life, this trail is all about the journey, so take your time and soak it in.

Gorgeous hike with amazing views! Very muddy but worth it.

Amazing picture taking. By 7 pools and also by ocean. Very kid friendly. But gates are closed cause water was to high. Take camera.

Amazing Trail. Water at the end is amazing. Don't give up and go all the way. A little difficult for children when wet. When dry weather not a problem. If wet wear proper shoes because it gets very slippery on rocks, tree roots, and muddy areas. Have Fun and hope you take camera for amazing pictures.

Even in the rain it was spectacular

Fun trail even in the mud. Be warned it is a busy trail. The views were great, the forest unique and something I will never forget!
