Beautiful Piiholo Ranch
Piiholo Ranch began as a dream of Peter Baldwin, a 5th generation descendant of Reverend Dwight Baldwin, who came to Maui in the 1830’s as a missionary. Pete’s great love of the outdoors led him to found Piiholo Ranch with the help of his three sons: Jeff, Duke and Chris. Together, they built a premier cattle business and horseback riding venture. Inspired by the growing field of eco-tourism and wanting to share the beauty of the ranch lands. Jeff approached Pete about building a zipline course on a corner of the Ranch – with rolling meadows, deep gulches and a high hill commanding spectacular views, this particular area offered a perfect setting for a world-class zipline adventure. The three brothers researched the best designers, the most respected builders and the highest quality materials, and after two and a half years of hard work, Piiholo Ranch Zipline opened to the public. 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 the state of Hawaii, over a half-mile long. Since March 2011, Piiholo Ranch Ziplines newest adventure, the canopy course has been offering exhilarating zips through the treetops amongst the forest canopy enabling a close-up view of an island landscape few visitors will get to experience.
What is a Zipline?
A zipline consists of a pulley suspended on a cable, usually made of stainless steel, mounted on an incline. It is designed to enable a user propelled by gravity to travel from the top to the bottom of the inclined cable by holding onto, or attaching to, the freely moving pulley. Ziplines come in many forms, most often used as a means of entertainment. Longer and higher rides are often used as a means of accessing remote areas, such as a rain forest canopy. Piiholo Ranch’s 4-line zipline tour offers almost 2 hours of thrilling fun as you zip over trees, gulches and green ranch land on the slopes of Haleakala. Going 2 at a time, side-by-side on their dual-line course, you’ll zip 4 unique lines ranging from 420 feet to over 1,000 feet long, and at heights ranging from 42 feet to almost 200 feet above the ground! They also offer a 3, 6 or 9 line Canopy tour ranging from 1-3 hrs. in duration, where you’ll soar through a tropical forest of towering eucalyptus on ziplines up to 1,000 feet long, cross aerial canopy bridges and finish with a zip through a tree tunnel. Great fun while you learn about Hawaii’s native plants and unique ecosystem, and enjoy ocean and mountain views. A great idea for group activities such as Birthday parties etc. is their Zip Climb. This tour combines the best of their canopy ziplines with the challenges of their climbing tower! You’ll zip three canopy lines, including the state’s longest in-the-trees line (930 feet), then you’ll move to the Tango Tower, their 42-ft. high climbing/high ropes adventure. This challenge offers 7 climbs including the Spider Web, Giant’s Ladder, Centipede, Vertebrae Ladder, King’s Swing, Inverted Climbing Wall, and Straight Climbing Wall.
