Pipiwai Trail to Makahiku and Waimoku Falls Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Makahiku Falls and Waimoku Falls are towering cataracts on the streams above Oheo Gulch. Makahiku Falls, a half mile from the trailhead, plunges 185 feet off the forested cliff into the deep gorge.
The trail ends further up the stream at the base of Waimoku Falls, set in a 400-foot rock wall amphitheater. The hike parallels Oheo Stream and Pipiwai Stream up the wet verdant valley, passing ancient taro farm sites and crossing two bridges. The jungle includes guava, mango, Christmas-berry trees and towering bamboo forests."
