Kahului: Rainforest & Waterfall Adventure for Families

Maui: Jungle and Waterfall Hiking Adventure

2. Maui: Jungle and Waterfall Hiking Adventure

This is a moderately challenging/technical hike for experienced hikers or active and fit types only, including kids. Enjoy the sweet smell of yellow and white ginger flowers (seasonal), as you hike through a lush jungle in the West Maui Mountains. Part of this adventure is the road less traveled, and in lower season, the entire journey feels that way. You will begin with a hike through bamboo thickets to a dirt trail that weaves in and out of a rocky stream. This will lead, on a trail which involves lava-rock/boulder hopping, to an upper-tier waterfall and pool which is perfect for swimming. The stream flow can be higher or lower depending on the season, with a higher amount of rainfall occurring at higher elevations. Along the way, your guide will point out old native ruins, as well as native species such as Awapuhi Ginger (seasonal), which can be used to condition your skin and hair on the spot! You will also find Banyan trees, originally from India, with aerial roots that will leave you in awe of nature. After feeling refreshed from your first swim, we'll return to the original point of entry and begin your descent to the next phase of the journey.  The 2nd phase is local style, and involves hiking through giant basalt formations while descending down to lower-tier waterfalls to explore and swim in the freshwater pools. The first tier has a natural waterfall slide that gushes into the pool, which is great for kids. You will then hike further down the rocky stream to an incredible banyan tree with giant roots for climbing down to a larger and more secluded 2nd-tier waterfall and pool, with the option of climbing into the fall. From here, you will stand above an even larger and steep 3rd-tier waterfall which gushes toward the ocean.

What people are saying about Kahului

My husband and I chose to do the rainforest hike and Twin Falls waterfall adventure and do not regret that choice at all! Our guide was Kacy and not only was he extremely knowledgeable, but he was very helpful as well! He showed us exactly where to climb up the waterfalls and where to jump from, and made me feel much more comfortable with jumping. He took us to 2 separate areas where we were able to jump from the cliff and swim in the natural pools. He also showed us multiple edible plants along our hike and made the experience so enjoyable. If you're thinking about doing this excursion, I definitely recommend Kacy as the guide! He will not disappoint!

This was the highlight of our trip! Shelby was so knowledgeable about Hawaii and the different plants and flowers. She was super patient with our two kids ages 7 and 10 who also agreed that the guided hike was their most memorable activity in Maui. We hiked, saw waterfalls, jumped off one and swam! Of all the activities we did in Maui, this was by far the best one. Thank you Shelby!

It was great - learned a lot about the plants and animals on Maui and the waterfalls were very beautiful! It was the perfect amount of time and our guide was very knowledgeable and a pleasure to know! We recommend this hike for sure!
