Planned to come here while still in England! Tour company didn't really give enough time to see it so had to run 4 miles but definitely worth it.

This was not what I expected. It's rough terrain. Incredibly beautiful ! Several hours in to see the waterfall - rocky walkways and the occasional flowing river that you need to walk a crossed. This has not been "Disney-fied" it's real nature. Wear the right gear, shoes bring snacks and enough to drink. On our way our seeing the tourist... More

We enjoyed our afternoon here. The bamboo was beautiful and made a wonderful sound in the wind. It was very tall and seemed mysterious.

I wouldn't go out of my way to go here but when included in a tour it makes for an interesting spot.

At the end of the Road to Hana is a most beautiful bamboo forest. The bamboo is so dense at times that you can't see through it. If you stay in Hana, you will beat the tours and tourists that are coming all the way down the road. Go early regardless. Take a rain poncho more to cover your camera... More

My wife isn't really a hiker, so it was like pulling teeth to get her up to where the bamboo started. In all fairness, she tried to be a good sport, but hiking is not her thing. I thought I'd never hear the end of it. Considering you see pictures of the bamboo forest in every gift shop on the... More

To clarify, this review is for the Bamboo Forest that is part of the Na'ili'ili Haele Stream & Waterfalls. NOT for the paid bamboo forest. The hike is off the Road to Hana between mile markers 6 and 7 (NOT the location as designated by Trip Advisor maps on this page). You should see cars pulled off to the side... More

This was definitely worth the long muggy walk in the forest - it had rained in the previous few days that we were there, so the path and walkway was a bit slippery, but just take your time. For anyone with unsure footing - walking poles would be a good idea in here. The whole walk in has many places... More

I didn't found it marked on national park map. But after walking on Pipiwai trail about 1.6 miles, I reached (right after the 2nd bridge). I like bamboo, there are plenty of them, I enjoyed a lot.
