Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

We hiked this trail after going on the Road to Hana and it was one of the highlights of our day!
A few tips...
1. Wear the right shoes - it is a moderate hike that is full of rocks and mud...sandals won’t do you much good.
2. Bring water - it is very humid on the trail.
3. Go all the way to the end - it’s worth it!

MAUI - CLOSED FOR COMMUNING. Just back from my 4th time and always hike the Pipwai. Now, thanks to irresponsible and reckless tourists, they have closed ALL of the waterfalls AND the Oheo Sacred Pools. People drive half the day to get out to them, and now, park and rec of Hawaii has closed most of what this trail is about; the waterfalls and any/all access. The world famous Ohea pools have been closed since 2016 with no signs of reopening. While I understand that this may be necessary, this is a MAJOR bummer for respectable eco-tourists who understand preservation and don't act like college yahoo's!

So remember, make the drive to the heavily populated trail and the pools, and be risk disappointment. That area of Maui has changed forever.

We did about 20 hikes. Many off the beaten path. This one was the best with an epic waterfall at the end.

This hike was moderate but extremely humid. Lot's of waterfalls, bamboo, trees, and shade. It is beautiful and worth the 4 miles. Only tip is to make sure to coat on the mosquito repellent!!! No joke, they tore us up.

This was such a magical hike! After a long day on the road to Hana I wasn't sure we'd be up for a 4 mile hike but I am sooooo glad we did. On this hike you will see the most beautiful bamboo forest and the most impressive waterfall of the entire trip in my opinion makes it all worth it. The hike can be challenging with a some pretty steep rocky steps at times sometimes muddy depending on the rain, but most of the trail is easy and there were many older folks and kids managing just fine. Worth the trip and entry fee to the park!
