Pipiwai Trail to Waimoku Falls

Maui, Hawaii

February 19, 2004

The Pipiwai Trail can be found in Haleakala National Park on the island of Maui. It is a 1.5 mile hike through beautiful bamboo forests, terminating at the spectacular 400-foot tall Waimoku Falls. Several smaller scenic waterfalls can also be seen along the way.

The bamboo forest begins about 1/4th of the way up the trail.






Several smaller waterfalls and natural pools along the way provide a good way to cool off before reaching Waimoku Falls.





The end of the trail at the base of Waimoku Falls. After this picture, I stood under the waterfall for a cool shower after the long hike.
