Pipiwai Trail Maui, Hawaii in 360 Degrees

Waimoku Falls was on my MUST DO list when we went to Maui, and it definitely did not disappoint.  This 400 foot waterfall has an enormous drop. It is about a 4 mile trip and can take anywhere from 2.5 hours to 5 hours depending how often you stop to enjoy.   We ended up here on a rainy day, which was maybe not super conducive to a great post, but I did my best.  However, I did discover that if you do the Road to Hana on a rainy day, you the WATERFALLS POP.  This is my second time driving road to Hana, and the waterfalls were incredible on a rainy day.  If you get lucky and get to Maui soon, here is my Google List of my Favorite Places in Maui.

Cool 360 Videos Walking to Waimoku Falls (check out both), but you need to watch it in You Tube or You Tube VR  to get the 360 feel.  Below is just kinda strange.  Click on this link to walk 360 degrees with me, and make sure to look around.  



SIGNS SAY BEWARE OF CROSSING THIS RIVER...SHOULD YOU CROSS OR NOT? 
I would say it is not worth it.


Pipiwai Stream right before Waimoku Falls

This section of Pipiwai Stram right in front of Waimoku Falls has a sign that talks about the dangers of crossing this river for it could be dangerous if a flash flood occurs.     There were many people who were crossing anyway, but there really is not that much pass this crazy crossing, just a sign that tells you that you will get fined $100 for passing any farther. for there is risks of getting smashed by falling rocks.  Such a desire to go closer, but is the fine and the risk worth it?  I was a good girl and turned around, so I unfortunately could not tell you, but this Drone Footage is PERFECT for a beautiful view of the falls.

WHERE IS THIS PIPIWAI TRAIL MAUI?  

One of the most common things done for visitors to Maui is travel to the Road to Hana.  Last time here, we took the motto "The Point of the Journey is not to Arrive" for we heard that there was not much at Hana, and that it was about all the cool things you can find on the way here (ended up doing crazy cool adventure of the Bamboo Forest Hike).  This time my first goal was to do this hike that is at the end of the Road to Hana.  It shares a parking lot with the seven Sacred Pools but heads up the mountain instead of towards the beach.  We parked in the top parking lot and the trail sign below was right there.

BAMBOO FOREST

Bamboo Forests are such a fun unique experience that is something I always associate with trails in Hawaii.  Although I love Bamboo Forests, I know they are really a noxious weed that is killing the rain forests and encroaching and taking over the area here.  Probably should not have been introduced on the island, but it does make for an exciting adventure on a hike.

VIEWS OF UNIQUE PIPIWAI TRAIL




I loved the many steps on this trail, and the crazy Roots along the trail.  
The sign above on the right was on multiple spots for there is this crazy deep ravine that the trail walks along, and the drop off is huge.  


Below is my attempt to show the depth of the ravine, but it didn't really work.

GRAND FALLS, ARIZONA.  This falls is amazing, but is only full during the early spring months.

SCOUT FALLS is also Fabulous in the Early Spring.  Gorgeous Waterfall that might not fall straight down, but still drops pretty close to the same distance in a very short time.
