Piiholo Treetop Zip

Awesome ziplines, an aerial bridge, tree platforms and 2 tree houses keep 'em thrilled for hours!

Soar through the treetops while learning about the tropical forest.

Situated at the edge of the rainforest at an elevation of approximately 2,000 feet, our location encompasses grasslands and rolling hills, lush forest, and rocky ravines, and offers stunning views of the island from Haleakala and the North Shore to the West Maui mountains and the beaches of Kihei.

Our 7-Line Treetop Zip Tour begins as you soar high above the Kahakapao Valley from tree to tree. You will experience a flying sensation as you swoop down into the valley, sail through canopy tunnels, and land at our Pirate Ship Treehouse. Your journey features 7 different treetop zip-lines ranging from 175 feet to our longest treetop zip-line at 930 feet! A grand finale that's sure to give you the thrill you're seeking!

Adventures are close to parking and check-in areas, and tours all end near their start, so no need to hike or be transported long distances. All ages from 8 to 98 are welcome!

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.

Awesome 7 line treetop zipline fun for my family, two kids 10 years old under 75 lbs. Guides were great! Fun and safe and shared some local knowledge as well as local eating spots. Lines and platforms and gear were well maintained. Being in the tree canopies with shade was very nice on hot sunny day. We had a great time!

This was my kid's first time ziplining. We are so glad that we chose the 7 line treetop experience. The guides were fantastic. Friendly, knowledgeable, supportive and patient. The treetop experience provided shade. We had great time with the last 900+ zipline being my favorite. I loved how you were kind of closed in and then it opened up to a lovely valley view. FYI - light snacks and drinks meant granola bars and water. We had a great group and loved our guides.

The staff was outstanding, the treetop tour was beautiful and exciting. The guides did a great job accommodating our two daughters (ages 8 & 11) - our girls loved it. I would recommend Piiholo Treetop Zip to anyone interested in a zipline adventure in Maui.
