BAMBOO FOREST TREK
This is one of the most popular adventures on the road to Hana, hiking up Oheo Gulch on the Pipiwai Trail. You will see spectacular waterfalls, a dark bamboo forest, a huge banyan tree, beautiful rainforest plants, flowers and birds, as well as historic sites too.
This full day private adventure starts in Kahului and goes in the reverse route around Haleakala to the far side of the island. This is the preferred route as you get out to the park quickly with fewer stops but the road is something else! You will be glad someone else is driving as you go along the steep, one-lane, unpaved coastal road to get to the park from the backside of Maui. It will be an adventurous day!
