The drive is about 2.5-3 hrs if you don't stop on the way. The road at the bottom half is winding and narrow and can be stressful driving if there is an oncoming tour bus. Someone may need to back up in order to pass. It has been dry lately and the water level at Ohe'o Gulch is low. And... More

There is a fair jaunt from the parking lot to the pools so don't carry a lot of unnecessary stuff...especially if you want to get to the highest pool. There is a bit of a precarious climb involved. Bags complicate the matter. Water shoes are the best footwear as you will be climbing over rocks and crossing the stream. I... More

After the hike on Pipiwai trail, this is a nice short 1/2 mile loop trail with nice views of the ocean. Very rocky and slippery so if you go down into the pools, be careful!

If you are going to get out of your car once on the road to Hana this should be the place. You don't want to miss this.

We visited the waterfall and the pools. Hiking to the waterfall was enjoyable. Visiting the pools was disappointing. There was no water flowing from one pool to the next and the water that was in each pool was brown and muddy. We encountered much more senic and secluded pools on the road to Hana.

Being from Western Canada I have seen hundreds, if not thousands of waterfalls and the hike up to the 400+ft falls here is absolutely worth it!! The hike is NOT for very small children, the elderly or people with terrible physical condition. With that in mind, I carried my 10-month boy up and down the 2-mile one-way trip, and my... More

Don't get me wrong, it is beautiful and a nice walk out here, but there are other pools and waterfalls along the road to Hana that are more spectacular. You can swim in the pools some brig your suit and a towel for the full experience. Worth a stop.

On the extreme far southeastern side of Maui, far from the tourist towns of Wailea, Kihei, and Lahaina is the Ohe'o gulch. Some publicist thought it would generate more tourist dollars by renaming it the Seven Pools Sacred Springs. Reaching Seven Pools is a monumental task, and has caused it share of nervous breakdowns. I drove nearly 3 hours the... More

We stopped here on a tour so we didn't have much time. We took the trail around which was fairly easy and not that long. Excellent views and sites.
