Piiholo Ranch Zipline invites guests to take advantage of a new “Kids Go Free” Promotion on their premier 9-line treetop canopy tour. Any child aged 8 through 12 participates for free with a paying adult ($165) on this approximately three-hour adventure that takes guests soaring through a tropical forest of towering eucalyptus on ziplines up to 930 feet long and 120 feet high. The Kids Go Free promotion will run indefinitely.
Piiholo Ranch Zipline’s 9-Line Canopy Tour features 3,666 total feet of zipping, including an aerial canopy bridge, and finishes with a zip through a tree tunnel. Once off the ground, guests remain high up in the trees, crossing 13 tree platforms, for the duration of the tour. Trained guides provide step-by-step instruction, while educating guests about Hawai‘i’s native plants and unique ecosystem. The tour includes a refreshment stop at one of Piiholo Ranch’s colossal tree houses. Participants must be at least eight years old, and weigh between 60 and 250 pounds.
In addition to the premier 9-line treetop canopy tour, Piiholo Ranch Zipline offers both 3- and 6-line treetop canopy tours. Their original zipline course offers a 4- and 5-line tour, featuring the longest side-by-side line in Hawai‘i, as well as expansive mountain and ocean views. Participants must be at least eight years old, and weigh between 75 and 275 pounds. Guests who prefer to watch, rather than zip the 4- or 5-line zipline tour, may join either tour as a walk-along participant. Digital photo packages, containing a variety of shots taken by the tour guide, are available for purchase at the Ranch Store, located in the heart of old Makawao town.
Situated on 800 acres of lush, bucolic ranchland in verdant Upcountry Maui, Piiholo Ranch Zipline, opened in 2008, is owned and operated by the Baldwin family. Family patriarch Peter Baldwin is a fifth-generation descendant of the Reverend Dwight Baldwin, an American missionary doctor who arrived on Maui in 1836. Cattleman, businessman, rodeo competitor, team roper, and polo player, Peter Baldwin’s great love of the outdoors led him to found Piiholo Ranch. Now, Peter’s sons Jeff, Duke, Chris, and their families are carrying out the Baldwins’ ranching legacy, while providing the ultimate playground for their guests.
Piiholo Ranch offers a number of horse-oriented activities, including guided horseback rides, private lessons, a kids’ “wrangler” camp, birthday parties, and pony rides. In addition to the two zipline courses, there is also an Xtreme Zip/Climb Tour combining the best canopy ziplines with the Ranch’s 42-foot-high climbing tower.
Piiholo Ranch Zipline is located on Piiholo Road in Makawao, 1.2 miles above Makawao Avenue, on the lower slope of Haleakala crater. Tours operate seven days a week, beginning at 8am, and running throughout the day until approximately 3pm. The ranch is closed New Year’s morning, Thanksgiving afternoon, and Christmas Day.
