One of the best hikes on Maui ... diverse scenery of the tropical rainforest, amazing vistas, variety of plant life & climate zones ... from rain forest along coastline or hiking up ~600 feet elevation. Dirt trail goes steadily uphill; with tree roots, sometimes mud, banyon tree, lava rock lined, plungle pools that create cascades and waterfalls, bridges over stream crossings, walkway above mud & mosquitos in cathedral of bamboo forest. SO WORTH IT ... especially when you make the final stream crossing and look up from near the base of 400 foot high Waimoku Falls. Takes 2 hours minimum; but schedule longer to rest along the way and enjoy! Wear/carry rain gear & water shoes; we hike the trail in our good soled tennies with traction but carry a small backpack w/ water shoes plus a protected change of clothes. Water, snacks, hat, sunscreen and insect repellant are all musts Plus your camera; you can rarely get all of Waimoku in one frame, even with a panorama setting. In Joy ... Enjoy!!
