I wouldn't go out of my way to go here but when included in a tour it makes for an interesting spot.

At the end of the Road to Hana is a most beautiful bamboo forest. The bamboo is so dense at times that you can't see through it. If you stay in Hana, you will beat the tours and tourists that are coming all the way down the road. Go early regardless. Take a rain poncho more to cover your camera... More

My wife isn't really a hiker, so it was like pulling teeth to get her up to where the bamboo started. In all fairness, she tried to be a good sport, but hiking is not her thing. I thought I'd never hear the end of it. Considering you see pictures of the bamboo forest in every gift shop on the... More

To clarify, this review is for the Bamboo Forest that is part of the Na'ili'ili Haele Stream & Waterfalls. NOT for the paid bamboo forest. The hike is off the Road to Hana between mile markers 6 and 7 (NOT the location as designated by Trip Advisor maps on this page). You should see cars pulled off to the side... More

This was definitely worth the long muggy walk in the forest - it had rained in the previous few days that we were there, so the path and walkway was a bit slippery, but just take your time. For anyone with unsure footing - walking poles would be a good idea in here. The whole walk in has many places... More

I didn't found it marked on national park map. But after walking on Pipiwai trail about 1.6 miles, I reached (right after the 2nd bridge). I like bamboo, there are plenty of them, I enjoyed a lot.

The trail starts from the Ranger Station at the 7 Sacred Pools, which requires a park entrance fee (currently $15) and is good for return visits here or to Haleakala for 3 days. An easy hike is the 1/2 mile loop down to the pools, but for a more challenging experience, cross the road and head up to the Bamboo... More

There is no marker indicating the location of this place - we missed the first time. Mile marker Hwy 360 is #6.7, GPS coordinates: 20.885207, -156.208211. Look for the cars parked by the road - also find the bamboo opening. Narrow uneven road leads down to first waterfall. Make sure you have good shoes - flip flap will not do.... More

4 mile hike round trip. Definitely recommend bug spray for those sensitive to bites. I unfortunately wore jeans to try and combat bites, but would recommend shorts instead (again with bug spray). The trail can be muddy in areas. I saw some people wearing flip flops, but if you're clumsy like me I would recommend wearing close toed shoes that... More
