Explore the incredible Bamboo Forest along the Na’ili’ili Haele Stream

Tom’s experience hiking in the Bamboo Forest:

The Bamboo Forest along the Na’ili’ili Haele Stream is a really awesome hike.
Maui Bamboo Forest

From the road you will need to find a hole to enter into the bamboo and the trail will head downhill towards the stream.

Hana Bamboo Forest

This was an interesting part because there were a few holes and it almost looked as if you were just entering into a huge weed or something but once you get in the forest opens up a bit and it is really pretty.

Hawaii Bamboo Forest

There are a number of waterfalls along the stream but there are numerous trails and not all of them lead to waterfalls, I think most were created by people who were lost. If you want to see the waterfalls make sure you stay near the stream.

The trail can get very muddy. You can make this hike as long or as short as you’d like but be warned that there are numerous rescues along this stream every year because the stream can raise significantly during poor weather.

Tom’s Rating:

Trail Info: The parking for the Bamboo Forest and Na’ili’ili Haele Stream is along the Road to Hana  at about mile 6.7. After a hairpin turn you will see a sign that says no passing and then along the right side of the road there will be a shoulder for parking. There is also a sign that warns not to leave valuables in the car. The trails start anywhere you can find a hole in the bamboo.
