Become a Hawaiian Cowboy for a Day! The Piiholo Ranch began as the dream of Peter Baldwin, a 5th generation descendant of the Reverend Dwight Baldwin, a missionary who came to Maui in the 1830’s. Pete’s love of the outdoors led him to establish Piiholo Ranch with the help of his three sons Jeff, Duke, and Chris.
With plenty of wide open ranges for horseback riding, ziplining, hiking, and panoramic views, Maui Horseback Riding at Piiholo ranch offers a traditional authentic Hawaiian paniolo cowboy adventure. Upcountry Maui’s premiere Maui Horseback Riding experience at the historic Piiholo Ranch is located on the edge of the rainforest 2,000 feet above the beautiful blue Pacific Ocean.
