A hike not to be missed south of Hana on the island of Maui is the Pipiwai Trail. It begins near the “Seven Sacred Pools,” and winds about 2 miles upland (mauka in Hawaiian) past a huge banyan tree near the 185 foot Makahiku Falls, through a bamboo forest, and dead ends at the base of the 400 foot Waimoku Falls pictured above. The water cascades off of Mount Haleakala and may vary from a trickle to a torrent, depending on the rainfall in the high country. We were there this past summer with family.

One thought on “Waimoku Falls”
Beautiful! We haven’t been on the road to Hana. Sounds like we’ve missed something special.
