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!

It's okay, that's how I can honestly best describe it. Not many good views and very short. You're better off doing this loop and then going to the Pipwai trail for a better hike. Pools are closed to swimming as well, so unless they open it back up, don't even think about that.

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.

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.

Awesome little trail. Bamboo forest is worth the trip alone.

Wouldn‘t call this a hike! Very short and easy. Pools look cool, but I would definitely recommend to do the Pipiwai Trail next to it, which is even more amazing!

Easy accessible and beautiful surroundings. Amazing bamboo forrest followed by an even more amazing waterfall!

Easy, beautiful hike!

Absolutely beautiful, especially after turning the final corner and seeing the beach. The color contrasts of the water, beach, and cone ate amazing. There is a short very slippery steep section.

“My Paradise” Not much of a hike but very beautiful and definitley worth the 5 or 10 minutes it’ll take to reach one of the most beautiful beaches on the planet. Not recommended for children can be slippery and dangerous depending on the time of year. Avoid trying to cut down the sides the rough water isnt worth it and if the helicopter has to come out to rescue shame on you! Just enjoy the view over to the red sand. The beach is amazing. Also Sometimes people get naked it is a nude beach.

Must see! Absolutely beautiful

Perfect hike for beginners. I've seen more impressive waterfalls at the end but after a long drive along the road to Hana, it's nice to stretch your legs on this walk.

Ahhh the road to Hana! Please be courteous and yield accordingly. Black sands beach is absolutely gorgeous and worth the drive, when we went it was rough sea and raining pretty hard, we still swam in the ocean and made for a great time!

This is a fantastic location. The trail to the beach will take about five minutes to walk and does have some mildly steep spots. There are some small tide pools and cliff jumping spots on the trail to the beach that are enjoyable. The beach is in a secluded location protecting it from wind and some weather. There is a ring of rocks out in the water that slow down the waves creating a calm location with clear water. The water is calm enough for small children to easily swim in.

Great location. This location is great for cliff diving, there are a few small beach areas. The location is in a small river inlet that is enclosed by rocks from the ocean. When there is little rain run off sometimes the water can be kind of gross from plant matter.

Loved this hike did it just before sunset as our final destination along the road to Hana ! Took us about an hour round trip but we hiked pretty quickly. They say it takes about an hour there ans back. Waterfalls breathtaking !!!
