Create an itinerary including Pipiwai Trail
One of Haleakala National Park’s most scenic hiking routes, Pipiwai Trail guides you past the thundering Makahiku waterfalls, and all the way up to the 122 m (400 ft) Waimoku Falls. The moderately strenuous hike is 6.4 km (4 mi) roundtrip and has a 244 m (800 ft) elevation change. Surrounded with lush greenery, the trail is well marked and covered with boardwalk in some sections. You will have to cross streams in a couple spots, so take care, especially if the water is moving fast. Remember to bring closed-toe shoes, food, water, sunscreen, and insect repellent. Before you head to Haleakala National Park, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Haleakala National Park trip maker app, to make sure you see all that Haleakala National Park has to offer, including Pipiwai Trail.
