Approximately 6 Hours
Walk to several waterfalls in one of Maui's most popular rain forest valleys. The falls are between 10 and 40 feet tall, and all have large pools perfect for swimming or toe-dipping (there is time for a swim for those who wish to do so). This valley is unusual in that it has so many waterfalls quite close together.
You'll experience Maui at its best as you explore among gorgeous bamboo and tropical rain forests, freshwater streams, numerous waterfalls and pools, ferns, flowers and fruit trees.
The whole area is a playground of beauty and adventure, and there is nothing as refreshing and bracing as showering under a Hawaiian waterfall.
Your rain forest walk is enhanced by expert naturalist guides -- these 'walking encyclopedias' can answer your questions about botany, ethnobotany, geology, culture and history.
The hike is two miles round trip. Footing can be tricky as there are rocks, roots, streams and sometimes mud to navigate. This is not a strenuous hike, but participants should be in reasonable physical condition and should expect to encounter occasional steep inclines. Lunch, backpack, rain poncho, insect repellent (when needed) and bottled water are provided. Wear your swimsuit under your clothing; bring a towel, reef-safe/biodegradable sunscreen, light clothing to act as a full cover-up for further protection from the sun, and a hat. Wear sturdy walking shoes or heavy-duty sandals for the hike. Minimum age is 10 years.
