The hiking directions for this Kipahulu trail seem like a treasure map from a fairy tale: Hike past the towering banyan tree and its radiant network of branches, then cross the bridge to a forest with bamboo so dense it blocks out the sun. At the end of the nearly two-mile trail lies 400-foot Waimoku Falls, the most captivating cascade you'll find on the drive to Hana. When finished, cool off in the nearby Pools at Ohe‘o—as long as the rangers have them open.
