This is a great place to visit. It was very breath taking place. Make sure you get there early before all the tourist get there. This was definitely a place that I loved visiting while in Maui.

The hiking trail to Ohe'o Gulch is easy and the pools are refreshing. Their is another trail at the park that is long, goes through a bamboo forest, and ends at a very steep waterfall, which is definitely worth the hike. That hike requires a lot of walking and is not for the faint of heart.

There has been little rain in Hana lately so the Waterfalls and the guch were pretty dried up, but it was still fun to hike down to the Guch and watch adventuresome visitors walk on the rocks to swim in the pool.

So, you've made it to Hana and now it's time to drive to Ohe'o Gulch. So much fun! We made a day of stopping at several beaches (Red Sand Beach, Hamoa Beach) after returning from the pools. The drive to the pools is an adventure unto itself - very narrow, winding road. Probably more exciting than the Road to Hana,... More

We stayed in Hana for a couple of nights at a very nice resort. That worked out great because we could spend a day traveling the road to Hana and spending plenty of time at all of the stops before we got to Hana. We went to Ohe'o Gulch the next day. The hike to the top of the falls... More

I took the circumnavigate Maui road to Hana tour about 2 weeks ago... the biggest disappointment, after the fact that the tour drive did 'slow downs' for pictures instead of true stops...making for pretty lousy reflective through the window shots... was OHe'o Gulch. All the pictures I have seen show it as a waterfall between pools of water flowing to... More

There were signs posted that the water can make you sick or even be fatal if you go in. The water had been stagnet for too long. Disappointing experience.

Check the water levels before you plan your whole day around this like we did, as there was one small "pool" with NO waterfalls at the base of the park where the gulch meets the Pacific. It was dry and rocky and quite frankly nothing special compared to all the other sights we had already seen on the road to... More

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
