Piiholo Side-by-Side


You will soar through the exotic treetop canopy on the longest side-by-side ziplines in Maui!

This one of the great experiences on Maui. The location is an 800-acre, historical and working, cattle ranch. You will move side-by-side along an exhilarating and stimulating zip-line course while enjoying the stunning views of Haleakala Crater.

You will be at an altitude of about 2,000 feet near the edge of a rainforest. The location encompasses rolling hills, lush grasslands, rocky ravines and beautiful forest. It will afford you dazzling island views from the North Shore and Haleakala to tropical beaches of Kihei and the mountains of West Maui.

If you opt for the 4-line tour, you will enjoy a thrilling experience as you zip over the gulches, trees, and lush ranch land on Haleakala’s slopes. As you go side-by-side on this breathtaking dual-line adventure, you will zip four distinct lines that range from about 420 feet to more than 1,000 feet in length, with a starting altitude of 42 feet you will soar to nearly 200 feet above ground level! Make sure you take the time to take in all the spectacular ocean and mountain views!

5-LINE SIDE-BY-SIDE ZIP (3 hours) +$66We also offer a premium 5-line tour that will leave you smiling for days! You will ascend 1420 feet above our ranch, and zip down at an incredible speed to reach the foothill of the beautiful Piiholo Hill. The ranch vehicle at the base will transport you to the hill’s peak so you can enjoy the lovely views of Maui. The last zip ride is a thrilling grand finale as it is the longest zipline in Maui, over 600 feet in altitude and half a mile in length!

You will not have to hike long distances as adventures are quite close to check-in and parking areas, and all tours end near the starting point. People from the age of 8 to 98 can take part.

  • Don't bring purses, backpacks, or large fanny packs; they won't fit with your harness and we have no place to store such items.
  • We do provide a storage box for your keys.
What can I do while my family/friend is on a tour?
We offer a walk-along tour that accompanies the 4 Line and 5 Line Zip Tours. The walk-along tour covers less than a half-mile over gently rolling, unpaved terrain, and puts you ground-side as the zippers fly by overhead. It offers great photo opportunities as well as time to relax and enjoy the views among the tall trees! All guests on tour enjoy a break together with light snacks and beverages at our Tree House.

While we do not, at this time, offer a walk-along tour on the Treetop Zipline course, you are welcome to sit and enjoy some quiet-time at the picnic tables of the treetop launch area, or take a hike at the nearby Makawao Forest Reserve (ask the guides for directions.) The nearby small town of Makawao offers a variety of galleries, stores and restaurants to keep you entertained for hours.

If you have kids under the age of 8, there is unfortunately little to do at the zipline except sit at a picnic table. There are horseback lessons at nearby Piiholo Ranch (minimum age is 3) or a nice park about 4-1/2 miles away, it's officially called the 4th Marine Division Memorial Park. It has a large grassy field and picnic tables.

This is my first time doing ziplining, and I am shocked that I have not done this earlier (I cannot imagine if all ziplining course is that much fun). This course is a 5-line course overseeing a gulch. After the 4th ride, there will be an ATV ride to the top of the hills. The view is spectacular where you can see from Kaluhui to Kihei. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful for my tour. Both my kids and I have a very good time. The 4th and 5th line are so long and picturesque that complement the thrill of the drop. The 5th line is so high up that you initially thought that line is supposed to be an overhead electrical cable!

Wow what I great day. We started the day by running up to Kula to eat at Kula Bistro on the way. Ill also do a review on that. The crew here was absolutely amazing. We had Tee, Meg and Nick. The attention to safety here was above anything I've ever seen. They were crazy about the safety of us. They were fun and informative as well. My child didn't make it all the way on one of the lines and they just went and got him like its something they have done 1000 times. I would totally do this zip again. It was me, my 10 year old and my husband, who is 250 lbs. Also, this was not a problem either. If you are visiting Maui you should definitely do this tour. We learned a great deal as well about the area. We also had time beforehand to walk about the cute town of Makawao. Its a neat place and great shopping.

We survived & thoroughly enjoyed the 6-line canopy tour. If you are active & physically fit, void of any aches & pains, not scared of heights or being off the ground for 2+ hours straight, and an adrenaline junkie - this particular zipline is for you! I've done several ziplines on the island, and this by far was the most challenging (both mentally & physically) that I've ever experienced. You are literally "in the trees" for over 2 hours. Most ziplines on the island have you start off with a couple of starter / beginner lines as a warm up; not this particular course! It starts off with a bang, and just keeps on going. They just implemented a quick jump where you jump off of a 43' platform to the ground. I almost didn't do it because truth be told - I'm scared to death of heights... but once I got my courage up & did it, I wanted to do it again! Highly recommend! The crew was absolutely fantastic (Whitney & Kaiani)!!! They were extremely professional, patient, kind, & fun! They made us feel extremely safe the entire time. Hey, don't forget to tip your crew!!! They work really, really hard! We were one of two couples that left a gratuity to show our appreciation. Two families of four did not; shame on them! Looking forward to returning to Piiholo to try their 5-line tour.

We did the 5 line zip line. My whole family enjoyed it. The last run is super long -- I think 2800 feet. You go across a canyon fill with green trees and...
