Do not skip this on the way out to Hana! You will love this site as it is loaded with beautiful bamboo, sparkling waterfalls and a beautiful river. We had lunch out on the rocks in the middle of the river, which was very pleasant....More

We loved all that Maui had to offer, but the bamboo forest was one of the highlights, we hiked all the way through.

After hiking on the Pipiwai Trail for almost an hour you will enter the magical place, the Bamboo forest. This place is absolutely amazing, you will feel calm, relaxed and for a moment you will forget everything about your problems. The music from the bamboo...More

This was our first stop on the Road to Hana. We skipped twin falls, because we knew there would be tons more waterfalls, but we picked this stop because we knew a bit more hiking would be involved. Take any of the trails down through...More

On the East coast of Maui there is this uncontaminated nature paradise. I suggest to visit this place in a sunny day, with your car or a rent car you can get here easily! Sport shoes, a waterproof jacket and a camera are essential! And...More

It's right away. You're surrounded by bamboo. That's what you walk through to reach the water.

Yes. We saw children much younger than 8 on the hike. However, I think about 6 would be the youngest I would take on the hike.

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.
