What You Can Expect

East Maui Waterfalls and Rainforest Hike

Hike through Maui's Lush Rainforest

This Maui waterfalls and rainforest tour begins at your hotel door (if you’ve chosen the optional transport option). If you’d prefer to drive yourself to the start, the tour begins in Kahului towards the start of the Hana Highway.
You’ll then be driven past the town of Paia and famous Ho’okipa Lookout, where the road gradually begins to narrow and weave deeper into the rainforest. Arriving at a popular, East Maui valley, your local guide will lead you on trails away from the rest of the crowds. This area has been chosen for its large number of waterfalls—with some up to 40 feet (12m) high—and you’ll encounter at least three over the course of the 2.5-mile (4km), moderately difficult hike.

At a hidden pool, stop to take a refreshing dip or go jumping off of the rocks, where the 10-15 ft.( 3-4.5m) height from the water can lead to a thundering splash. Enjoy a healthy meal of sandwiches, fresh island fruit, and chips, and relax in the sun while seated on rocks at the base the tropical pool.

Dry yourself off and drink in the scenery of deep in the East Maui rainforest, before continuing the hike past even more waterfalls on the short walk back to the van.

We went on this hike with HikeMaui and really liked our experience. The tour was on time when picking us up. The guide was very friendly and took her time to get to know us and engage with us. Once we got to the tour site we had any extra gear we may need provided to us. We were provided waters, backpacks, lunches, rain pouches as needed and bug spray. On the hike our guide pointed out many features of the rainforest including the plant life and the edibles there. We were taken to four different waterfalls where we could swim or perhaps jump into a pool for a little thrill. The hike was perhaps 2-3 miles and the terrain ranged from easy to moderate in my opinion. Some of the pools were a bit tougher because the rocks are so slick. My group consisted of a 50 year old male, two 12 year old gals, a 17 year old boy. I recommend this because it is a great way to see some Hawaii nature in a safe friendly way.

This was an experience I will never forget. You do need to have good shoes that you don't mind getting dirty or rent the ones they have available. The waterfalls were gorgeous, and it was so much fun to jump off the ones that we could. There were a couple of places that we hiked that were a little steep and one place that we had to hold a rope to get down, but overall the hike was pretty easy. I highly recommend this tour - do NOT miss it!

This was one of our favorites. Our guide, Jeremy, was great. Very funny and knowledgeable about all things Maui. The hike was not difficult for the most part and he helped anyone who needed it. He showed us a lot of the vegetation and explaining facts about them. He gathered some passion fruit off the forest floor and we all got to try some , same with eucalyptus and ginger trees/plants. I would recommend this to anyone interested in nature and local vegetation.

Our tour guide Kahi was Maui native and showed us great insights to the waterfalls and the vegetation throughout the tour. This is basically a tour within a huge farm they own with hiking trails to waterfalls where you can swim and dive into. Great experience and highly recommend Kahi as a tour guide! He was the best part!

Great hike. Lots of fun and the guide knew a ton about the local vegetation. We read reviews that warned of bugs but didn't have any issues with it. You do want to wear good shoes that can handle walking in water.
