Pipiwai Trail's Bamboo Forest

Hiking Trails on Maui

Maui has some absolutely fantastic trails - hikers surely won't be disappointed. You can hike a trail leading into a rain forest or trek into a gulch with a 400-foot waterfall (Pipiwai Trail, beyond Hana) as your reward. If you'd prefer, venture along the ridge of Waihee Valley and commune with the clouds and spot rare birds and tropical plants. You can even explore the erosional crater of Haleakala volcano and view one of the world's most bizarre and rare plants, the silversword. In fact, we're especially fond the multitude of trails at the summit of Haleakala (Keoneheehee Sliding Sands Trail is fantastic for views into Haleakala).

In this section, you can get a hiker's view of the trails through our many photos plus loads of first-hand trail information and tips - trust us, we have the well-worn hiking boots to prove it! Ultimately, whether you choose to strike out on your own or take a guided hiking tour, the Valley Isle's trails are full of adventure.
