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.

I was a bit nervous about zip lining but the rest of my family begged to go. Carlo and his team helped me feel perfectly safe as we zipped over beautiful landscapes. One of the lines was a half mile long! They picked us guavas from the ranch trees, took our pictures and kept us laughing the whole time.

"Great on the day, terrible customer service after the booking"

I had a great experience at the Zipline on the day - fun, safe and great guides. However, I paid for the photo option when I booked online but did not receive any photos on the day. When I emailed the next day to ask how I could access the photos - I got no reply. I emailed again a week or so later asking for a refund for the photos as I did not receive them - again I received no reply at all. As you can margined I was annoyed when I received an email a couple of days later asking me to review the company on TripAdvisor. I’m hoping that this review will finally get a reply from the company and I will get the refund for the photos I never received.

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!
