Discover the natural beauty hidden just off Hawaii’s famed Hana Highway on a waterfalls and rainforest hike in east Maui. This 6- to 7-hour excursion takes you deep into one of Hawaii’s most popular valleys, where several waterfalls tumble within a short distance of one another. On this relaxed hike, take a dip into the pools located beneath the falls, clamor up columnar basalt rock formations to jump safely into the water, and enjoy a healthy lunch. Round-trip transport from your Maui hotel included.

Returns to original departure point
Outfitted in a swimsuit, begin the journey from your hotel—if you’ve opted for round-trip transport—or meet your guide in the town of Kahului, where the Hana Highway begins. You’ll be driven to the entrance of the hiking area, which was selected for its heavy concentration of waterfalls. Your guide will lead you along streams to three or more of these breathtaking cascades, some more than 40-feet (12-meters) high. While many tourists flock to Hana Highway area for its scenic beauty, your local guide knows the best vantage points for appreciating the falls on your 2.5-mile (4-kilometer) hike.
The waterfalls are breathtaking from land, but they’re even better up close. Wade into any of the pools under the falls—depending on the season, some are calm enough to pass beneath. With advice from the guide, adventurous types can climb up to the nearby columnar basalt ledges and jump 10- to 15- feet (3- to 4.5-meters) into the water below. After exploring the waterfalls by both land and water, enjoy a healthy lunch of your selection of sandwiches, chips, fresh island fruit, cookies and water. Dry off from your time in the water before finishing your hike. A van will transport you back along the Hana Highway to your hotel.

George was an amazing guide! Extremely knowledgeable and attentive to our needs. Such beautiful scenery starting with the ride to the hike, the waterfalls and the amazing flowers and vegetation! Would highly recommend! There were a few spots while hiking that were a bit rough, but my Teva sandals did the job!
We had a wonderful time. Our tour guide, Jacob, was amazing!! He was so friendly and knowledgeable. He made the hike even more enjoyable. Outstanding. Thank you Jacob!
The hike through the rainforest was amazing. So beautiful and Isaiah made the entire experience! He was friendly, funny, I formative and kept everyone involved and having fun. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Maui
Pasco our guide was extremely well-versed in and connected to the flora, fauna and fascinating rainforest trails, footpaths and hydrocycle of the East Maui springs, waterfalls and jungle. This is not a leisurely stroll upon gilded forest paths to a waterfall, but an adventurous hike up, through, and across amazing rainforest to hidden waterfalls across hidden pathways. You should wear tennis shoes and socks and be assured that they will be soaked and mud caked then soaked again as you wade through ankle high, knee high, and waist high clear mountain springs. You will swim In crystal clear waterfall pools alone from crowds and later, with crowds on the fourth of five waterfalls we visited. You will stand behind falls and jump from a cliff into a crystal clear pool of you choose. And why wouldn't you? You will remember this trip for the rest of your life.
The waterfalls were amazing and beautiful. The water was so refreshing to swim in. Our guide, Polley, was full of information regarding all the foliage growing around us. The hike is fairly easy but difficult to navigate in some places. Great experience!
Excellent tour. I would not hesitate to do this again on my next visit.
We went on this hike with HikeMaui and really liked our experience. The tour was on time when picking us up. The guide was very friendly and took her time to get to know us and engage with us. Once we got to the tour site we had any extra gear we may need provided to us. We were provided waters, backpacks, lunches, rain pouches as needed and bug spray. On the hike our guide pointed out many features of the rainforest including the plant life and the edibles there. We were taken to four different waterfalls where we could swim or perhaps jump into a pool for a little thrill. The hike was perhaps 2-3 miles and the terrain ranged from easy to moderate in my opinion. Some of the pools were a bit tougher because the rocks are so slick. My group consisted of a 50 year old male, two 12 year old gals, a 17 year old boy. I recommend this because it is a great way to see some Hawaii nature in a safe friendly way.
Yes my trip to the east maui waterfalls and rainforest hike was the greatest hike
This was an experience I will never forget. You do need to have good shoes that you don't mind getting dirty or rent the ones they have available. The waterfalls were gorgeous, and it was so much fun to jump off the ones that we could. There were a couple of places that we hiked that were a little steep and one place that we had to hold a rope to get down, but overall the hike was pretty easy. I highly recommend this tour - do NOT miss it!
This was one of our favorites. Our guide, Jeremy, was great. Very funny and knowledgeable about all things Maui. The hike was not difficult for the most part and he helped anyone who needed it. He showed us a lot of the vegetation and explaining facts about them. He gathered some passion fruit off the forest floor and we all got to try some , same with eucalyptus and ginger trees/plants. I would recommend this to anyone interested in nature and local vegetation.
We truly enjoyed every moment of this hiking adventure. Pasco was an exceptional guide. He shared his vast knowledge of Maui and the land. He careful to ensure our safety and enjoyment. I was very impressed with all aspects of this tour. The day couldn't have gone better.
This trip is a MUST HAVE, incredible experience. Very well organised, confirmed pickup time quickly after we booked online, via both email and phone call to the hotel room. Brian, our guide, very knowledgable, super funny and caring. Recommended sport sandals or their cute water shoes. 5 stars!
Our tour guide Kahi was Maui native and showed us great insights to the waterfalls and the vegetation throughout the tour. This is basically a tour within a huge farm they own with hiking trails to waterfalls where you can swim and dive into. Great experience and highly recommend Kahi as a tour guide! He was the best part!
Great hike. Lots of fun and the guide knew a ton about the local vegetation. We read reviews that warned of bugs but didn't have any issues with it. You do want to wear good shoes that can handle walking in water.
Twin Falls was the perfect way to experience the Hawaiian tropical rainforest and waterfalls for me as a single mom on vacation with 2 kids. It was an easy hike, just enough for the kids to enjoy before the whining set in. Also, having a guide turned out to be a good decision as when we were on our hike I saw many individual groups of people wandering around on the main trail trying to find the good spots. Our guide, Aaron, was perfect. He was personable and friendly and made it enjoyable. A local, he knew the trail very well and went out of his way to guide our group which was a good size- not too many people to different trails. He was aware of his surroundings and prioritized our safety. My favorite waterfall seemed to be the one people without a guide were having trouble finding- it had a nice deep pool that made for good swimming.
Shestin was our guide and it was fantastic. I encountered some difficulty in some spots and he was right there to help. I would say the hike was moderate to difficult. There is a ledge to climb, concrete walls about two fee wide to walk across, streams to wade and a tangled root forest to navigate. We stopped frequently so Shestin could explain the trees/plants. He was so knowledgeable! Really good shoes are a must. I had on a pair of tennis shoes and guess they had seen their better days because the sole separated from the shoe at the end. They were a really good brand too but a few years old. Sandwiches were good and the chocolate chip cookies on the ride back were delicious! I am 72 years old and feel very proud that I made the 3 mile hike! Thank you Shestin for your help and to the other nice guys on the hike who also offered a hand to me in some spots. My daughter did the cliff dive into the waterfalls and she loved it. No critters in the rain forest only human critters. It was fantastic. As for my bucket list -- rainforest hike: check!!!
The best part of my Maui vacation. This hike was beautiful and our guide Sarah was very knowledgable and nice. She was able to explain all of the foliage and history. The waterfalls were beautiful. My family and I had the best time. Thank you.
