A walk through the rainforest can be more than time spent absorbing the island’s natural beauty. Case in point: the guided Short Waterfalls Hike with Hike Maui takes you through seldom-visited private lands in Hoolawa Valley, led by a trained naturalist who reveals how ancient Hawaiians once cultivated plants found here. Your journey follows a path along a stream and includes swimming in freshwater pools under two different waterfalls, and even jumping from safe rock ledges into the pools. The easy one-mile round-trip hike is just right for families (minimum age: four) and multigenerational groups. Hike Maui will even provide you with a backpack, bottled water, fruit, and snacks for this scenic adventure.
