West Maui waterfall hike

The West Maui Mountains are actually a single extinct volcano, sculpted by more than a million years of wind and water into steep-sided canyons whose forests are vertical. A narrow valley winds its way into the heart of the mountain, with a river charting its course. We’ll hike through stands of bamboo that filter the sunlight green, and follow the trail past thickets of rose apple and mountain apple, guava and ginger, kukui nut and Java plum trees.

On this moderate, half-day excursion, we'll ascend from 700 to 1,200 feet, keeping the river near us for a refreshing wade. The ultimate reward? A plunge into a cool, fresh-water pool for a swim against the spectacular backdrop of a cascading waterfall 30 feet high.

Half-day, 3 miles RT - Moderate - $89


Half-day, 1 mile RT - Short version - $69**

Hike Maui’s wilderness with a knowledgeable owner/guide who will share a wealth of information about island history, geology, flora and culture. Our hiking tours range from short and easy, to rigorous explorations of a Maui the average tourist seldom sees. If you are a hiking purist you will want to do these Maui tours.

As the owner and guide of Maui Hiking Safaris, I would like to extend to you an invitation to join me on the trail. I have been hiking on Maui since 1981 and have been in business since 1994. We are listed in Frommer’s Hawaii From $70 A Day, Frommer’s Portable Maui, Frommer’s 2000 Hawaii, Hawaii Handbook, Hidden Maui, Hawaii Adventures In Nature and The Complete Idiot’s Travel Guide To Hawaii. We’ve had articles written on us in the travel section of the Orange County Registar and Shape Magazine. We’ve recently had articles written on us in The Los Angeles Times and The New York Times about our Maui tours.

I take out groups consisting of no more than eight clients***. Additionally, when you book direct, you save, as I do not use activity agents or concierges (sometimes commisionable). Please make yourself well informed as regards to contractual steerage by brokers. I also offer discounts based on booking criteria that clients can meet. You also get great service and the small size of the group adds intimacy to the experience.

Please take a look at some of the testimonials clients have made about the hikes along with the reviews I have gotten on Trip Advisor. I personally assure you that this will be one of the highlights of your trip. I look forward to sharing with you the real Maui that I have become familiar with!
