Recreation

 Hiking is the major attraction for the Kipahulu District of the Park. The campground overlooks ocean cliffs and is a short walk to ‘Ohe’o Gulch and Kuloa Point along the Coastline Trail. The Kuloa Point Loop Trail loops around and leads to the Pipi Wai trail which goes across the road and will go through a dense bamboo forest with views of Makahiku Falls and Waimoku Falls. The hike is a nature trail with a boardwalk going through the bamboo forest. The hike is 2 miles one-way and takes approximately 2 and1/2 hours to complete, taking your time to enjoy the scenery. Make sure to pack plenty of water and be prepared for rain at any time. Please keep in mind, these waterfalls are for viewing only. Adhere to all signs and be safe on your hike. Venturing off trails can lead to unwanted accidents. Junior Ranger programs are available for young children. Join our Rangers at the Visitor Center for information.
