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.

Bamboo Forest Hana

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.

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.

Explore the family friendly Lisa Falls

Tom’s experience hiking to Lisa Falls:

Lisa Falls is a multitiered waterfall up Little Cottonwood Canyon in Salt Lake City. Lisa Falls Hike

The trail up to the waterfall is very short, about .11 miles from the parking area. However, the trail to the falls is pretty steep.

Salt Lake City Lisa Falls

You must cross the stream to get to the waterfall so either wear shoes that can get wet or be prepared to jump across rocks.

Hike Lisa Falls

It really wasn’t too hard to keep your feet dry on this hike. The waterfall is pretty neat and has at least two tiers.

Lisa Falls Waterfall

The river itself is also very pretty as it flows along the granite rocks. You can climb up to the top of Lisa Falls if you climb up the left hand side as you are looking at the waterfall.

Lisa Falls Salt Lake City

It isn’t too difficult but it is dangerous. Dogs are not allowed up Little Cottonwood Canyon or on this hike.

Tom’s Rating:

Trail Info: The Lisa Falls trailhead isn’t marked but isn’t too difficult to find. At the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon you will drive up canyon for 2.7 miles. There will be a small parking lot on the right side of the road and another small parking lot on the left hand side of the road. The trail starts on the left hand side so if you can park there thats awesome. The trail is pretty easy to see. When we went it was pretty crowded and easy to find.
