Zipline-5 Line Premiere Tour
Our premier 5 Line Zip Tour will have you smiling for days!
You will soar high above the Ranch, zipping down a 1420-foot line to the base of Piiholo Hill. From there, a Ranch vehicle is waiting to take you to the top where you’ll enjoy breathtaking 360-degree views of Maui. your final zip is an exhilarating grand finale: Maui’s longest side-by-side zipline that is more than half a mile long and at times 600 feet high!
Don’t wish to zip but want in on the fun? Join your family and friends on tour as a walk-along for $25 per person plus tax.
Since its opening in December 2008, Piiholo Ranch Zipline has quickly become one of the premier zipline adventures in the United States. Designed to showcase its beautiful setting, the course crosses deep gulches and tall trees, and offers stunning vistas from mountain to sea. It also includes the longest side-by-side zipline in Maui, Hawaii — over a half-mile long!
You are welcome to bring your own GoPro! However, please be aware our older helmet mounts may not be compatible with the mounts on newer camera models. Bring your head straps!
Please note: Final authorization to use any outside equipment rests with the tour guides.

What can I do while my family/friend is on a tour?
We offer a walk-along tour that accompanies the 4 Line Zip Tour, 5 Line Zip Tour, and Zip/Waterfall Hike Combo Tour. 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.
The 5 zip line tour was great for our family of 6 kids! With the free humor provided by Nate and Skyler, the zip line toursmen, we were all kept thoroughly entertained. Thanks for making it special for everyone. They hardly noticed the rain.
