Description

from Piiholo Ranch Zipline Tours
Our 4-line zipline tour offers almost 2 hours of thrilling fun as you zip over trees, gulches and green ranchland on the slopes of Haleakala. Going 2 at a time, side-by-side on our dual-line course, you'll zip 4 unique lines ranging from 420 feet to over 1,000 feet long, and at heights ranging from 42 feet to almost 200 feet above the ground. Don't forget to take in the beautiful mountain and ocean views!

Our 5-line tour, almost 3 hours long, will leave you smiling for days! While lines 1, 2 and 3 are the same as on the 4-line tour, you’ll head off in a different direction at line 4, zipping down a 1,420-foot line to the base of Piiholo Hill. There a Ranch vehicle is waiting to take you to the top, where you’ll enjoy breathtaking 360-degree views of Maui. Your final zip, as you speed down a line more than half a mile long and at times 600 feet high, is a thrilling grand finale to an awesome experience!

Want to be part of the fun, but not interested in ziplining? Join the tour as a walk along participant and you can take pictures, laugh along, and get a little exercise.

If you're looking to zipline from tree to tree in the rainforest, this is the place. So much fun and the guides were so friendly. It's a little more rustic than the other two outfits over on West Maui which makes for a great adventure! It was just what we were looking for.

The zip line tour was fantastic ! The guides were incredibly knowledgeable, had our safety primarily in mind, but were also a TON of fun! They knew the best photo ops and were more than willing to help us take pictures of our amazing adventure. They knew tons about the local wildlife and pointed out animal life and scenic locations to keep and eye out for as we zipped over canyons and rivers. Would highly recommend to anyone! Fantastic company, such a fun thing to do on Maui!!

The 5 lines were great. Started off with a short one and worked our way up to one that flew over the valley for more than a minute and 1/4 mile. All the staff were excellent and very safety minded.

Frequently Asked Questions about Piiholo Ranch Zipline Tours

How do I get to the ranch?
The ranch is located in Upcountry Maui, a mile above the town of Makawao, on the lower slopes of Haleakala crater. Check-in for ziplining is at 799 Piiholo Road, 1.2 miles above Makawao Avenue. We recommend renting a car for the day to come up here; there are many other wonderful sights to see. The Maui Bus only gets you to Makawao Town (Route 40), then there is a mile walk to the check-in location.

What should I wear for ziplining?
We require that all participants wear closed-toe shoes. Croc-style shoes, walking sandals, Vibram FiveFingers, water shoes, and flip-flops are prohibited. We recommend that participants dress comfortably for the weather forecast. Wearing pants or longer shorts will provide the most comfortable experience with the harness. We also suggest bringing a hat, sunscreen, and a light cover-up due to the changes in weather.

What should I bring?
We recommend bringing a camera to capture your ziplining memories. However, all cameras must have a strap for safety. Anything lost during the ziplining duration part of the tours are lost forever!
