After a short hike through a forest of Eucalyptus trees, you’ll arrive at the first zipline of the tour.
Your expert guides will help you clip in, and then off you go—sailing over a massive ravine more than 50 feet below you’re dangling feet. Ten seconds later, you’ll gracefully land on the platform more than 150 feet from your starting point. The lines get faster, and longer from this point forward!
Take a few steps and you’ve arrived at line two: ‘Akahekohe,’ (the Crested Honeycreeper).
This line is known for its 70-foot cliff-like drop-off. Our wooden platform is securely fastened to the edge of the cliff where you’ll step off from into thin air. This line carries you over deep ravine where you might spot some endangered Ama’u ferns.
This line is known for its plank-like launching platform that dangles over a huge valley.
If it isn’t too wet, your guide may let you take a running start for this line to pick up some real speed. After a brief free-fall, the line catches you and zips you across a valley filled with bright orange lichen, rich green ferns, and lush grass.
This line is over a football field long, and sends you directly through the valley you zipped over on line 3.
Valley walls will tower above you on either side as you fly just above the valley floor.
Since we couldn’t build a zipline uphill, we found another way to get back to the other side of Pahakuokala Gulch—an Indian Jones-style swinging bridge!
Swinging 80 feet above the valley floor, this bouncy bridge will give you a chance to really get a good look at the beautiful nature around you. Below the bridge is an area where our staff, and many volunteers have planted thousands of trees and native plants. You’ll notice the native wildlife returning to the area.
As you approach the beginning of the line, you’ll notice stunning views of Maui’s North Shore framed by Haleakala’s subtropical rainforest; this line is one of our favorites.
We named the line after Hawaii’s fastest bird—the Io, for a reason. You’ll accelerate from 0 - 45+ mph in just a few seconds on this pendulum style zipline. This line will give you a story to tell, and an experience to remember. We look forward to seeing you soon!
