Waterfall and Rainforest Hike
Waterfall and Rainforest Hike
Departing from Kahului, you'll drive to the trail head, approximately 30 minutes away. Upon arrival, you'll hike through a lush valley along Maui's famous road to Hana. During the hike, you'll enjoy the view of several scenic waterfalls up to 40 feet high! Feel free to stop and swim in several large pools underneath the waterfalls. You can even leap from waterfall ledges into the pools below!
Your guide will make this 2.5 mile hike come alive with their extensive knowledge of the local animal and plant species, and with their love of life in Hawaii. The elevation change is only around 200 feet, so the hike is not very strenuous. The hike will require some boulder scrambling for short distances in streams, so participants should be comfortable with crossing streams on their hike. You will be provided with a backpack with mosquito repellent, bottled water, ponchos, lunch, and snacks. You won't want to miss this memorable Hawaiian waterfall hike!

This was a very enjoyable hike, beautiful scenery with a very knowledgable and kind tour guide. He packed a terrific lunch with multiple snacks for everyone. Packed plenty of water for us and went above and beyond expectation. The "Shore Excursions Group" bookings were far better than the cruise ship bookings by several means.

Our guide was awesome! He took time to point out growing pineapples, avocados, bananas & so much more. We probably would have walked right passed without knowing they were there. He was friendly and so patient with the whole group. The rainforest was gorgeous to hike through and the 4 waterfalls we were able to get to that day were simply so beautiful and refreshing. Truelly our favorite excursion we went on.

The tour guide was very informative and fun! We loved jumping off cliff and swimming under the waterfalls! Absolutely exhilarating!

It was informative and fun with small groups of 8-10 people. The hike led to opportunities to swim next to waterfalls and the option of jumping off waterfall for those brave enough to try. It was a check off on my bucket list.

Maybe I can review this hike to pull together some of the different reviews and help you decide if this is for you. Our guide Tony was excellent and gave us so much information about the plants, the area we were hiking in and about Maui. This is not a fast paced hike, you will be stopping to look at plants, sample some fruit and check out the waterfalls that you see. However you should be prepared for hiking through mud and water. Waterproof hiking boots or water shoes/sandals would be ideal. You will be hiking through streams which may be up to your ankle or higher and there is a short climb over rocks with ropes on the trail. Lunch and water is included and you are loaned a backpack to carry those in. Also there is bug spray provided. You may swim in the pools at the waterfalls if you would like to, but it was way too cold to do that when we were there. This was the excursion we enjoyed the most and we did a lot of them.
