Short Waterfall Walk
Short Waterfall Walk
The drive from Kahului is approximately 30 minutes to the trail head. Upon arrival, you will set out on an approximately 2-hour easy hike to scenic waterfalls in a gorgeous Maui valley. Your enthusiastic guide will bring the hike alive with their knowledge of the natural environment and culture of Hawaii.
The hike is a leisurely one-mile round trip on a trail and through streams, with the option to swim in pools fed by waterfalls. Those with an adventurous spirit can choose to jump off safe rock ledges 10 to 15 feet high. This is a great tour for those who want to escape the cement pavement for an easy hike, with plenty of time to swim as well.
Mark our guide was fantastic. He was attentive to all ages. Mark made it fun for the teenagers in our group and was very helpful with me personally. I recently lost a lot of weight and it was on my wish list to climb and jump off the waterfalls. I DID IT! The water is very refreshing (cold) but worth it. Mark also brought snacks and water and we had samples of fruits and ginger during our walk. He was very informative. FYI Make sure you wear shoes that you can keep on in and out of the water for walking. Too dangerous to go barefoot.
Our recent hike in beautiful Maui was a morning to remember. We were picked up as promised and were on our way. We were nearly as our hike location when the van got a flat tire. Our guide got the van to the side of the road and informed us that everything would be taken care of. We got out of the van and had to wait while the company sent a new van and someone to take care of the flat tire. You might think that our trip was ruined. It was not. The guide kept all 10 of us happy, including the 2 children. We used the time to apply the bug spray which she provided. Water and chips were also offered. We eventually arrived at our hike location. It was beautiful. Our guide took us at a nice pace and made sure everyone kept up. She took pictures with our cameras. We saw a few waterfalls and went swimming. This was a memorable morning in Hawaii.

We had an awesome Guide, Nicole. I would have tipped her $1,000 if I had it. She was so awesome with the kids. She had so much knowledge of not only this island, but Hawaii in general. I don't think we had one question, that she didn't have the answer for. It was a great excursion.

This was the best excursion of our cruise. Our guide, Pasco, was amazing. He was so knowledgeable about the area, was patient with my excessive photo-taking (even took some for me), and made sure we got across the rivers safely. There is nothing extremely difficult or strenuous about this hike. The scenery and the waterfalls were amazing. We've never swam in waterfall pools, jumped off cliffs, or slid down natural waterslides. The experience was unforgettable! Highly recommend this excursion (or even the longer one).
