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.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I wear or bring?

  • Closed-toe shoes are required. Please no Croc-style, walking sandals with open toes, Vibram FiveFingers, water shoes, or flip-flops.
  • We recommend to dress comfortably for variable outdoor weather (such as pants or longer shorts) and to bring a hat, sunscreen, and a light cover-up.
  • Don't forget your camera! Make sure it has a strap for safety. Anything dropped on tour is gone for good.
  • 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.

We went to Maui with friends and wanted to zipline. We have been to Maui several times and have ziplined with different companies each time. After researching many of the different zip lines we decided on Piiholo Side-by-side. We were extremely pleased that we did. The views were amazing and all the ziplines are side by side so we were able to ziplibe together. The equipment was the best we have seen compared to the other companies we have used. You felt completely secure. Mei our guide was terrific. Friendly, funny and very knowledgeable. We had a great tontime and would highly recommend this zipline company

Not having done a side-by-side Zipline before this was first for me and my granddaughter. Great fun with experienced and safety oriented staff. Our guide Nick and his crew were focused on safety first in a fun and enjoyable way. Nick could take his comedy to a nightclub!
