Maui's ultimate waterfall wonderland--the pristine Kipahulu Valley, an area still described as Old Hawai'i. We hike 4.5-miles (round trip) along national park trails following the most beautiful stream on Maui. It's hard to say which is the most heart stopping: the 200-foot waterfall seen from a spectacular lookout or the 400-foot falls at the end of the trail. Or it could be the break in the greenery where the rain forest becomes a giant forest of solid bamboo. There is nothing like a dark hike through dense bamboo. The whole place is so spectacular it should be a national park. And it is.
