The legendary seven pools were more like the the 5-1/2 dry holes. The lack of rain in the area has left most of the pools dry and there are no waterfalls to see. Kind of disappointing after driving 4 hours to get there. But still interesting to look at the lava beds which the waters have carved into to create... More

Definitely suggest this visit if you're in the area... beautiful falls and views to the ocean, and hike from parking lot is easy.

Beware of drought!! The gulch is dry. Seven pools are down to zero as of March 2015. Wish I knew before the hours-long drive.

Now this attraction is within the Haleakala National Park, and there is a fee for entry. The water is cold and always swift as it tumbles to the Pacific from its sources at 9,000 feet above sea level. A cool off dip is oftentimes very welcome after the rigorous Hana Highway drive.

If you in the area, I would suggest hiking the Pipiwai first, than hitting this on the way down for a nice cool down. The pools are clean and you can hike to the upper pools where there are less tourists. A very neat spot, worth the stop if you plan on swimming.

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
