My family and I made a whole day out of it, where we would stop at all the attractions, see waterfalls, go hiking, visit local fruit stands, etc. Don't waste your time driving up here, see the...

We stopped by Ohe'o Gulch on our way to the Pipawai Trail. It was quite pretty and many people were wading or swimming. The water looked murky and muddy so we didn't go in. The falls didn't seem to be very 'full' so maybe due to not enough rain coming off the mountains? The oceanview was spectacular with huge waves... More

Great place. It is believed that at certain places you actually can feel the spirit of Nature. And this is one of those places.

It was raining when we got there, and the park attendances alerted us that we couldn't swim in the pools. :(. The pools were full, with a lot of flowing water. I can see why they don't want you swimming in it. The hike was short, but a nice way to stretch your legs. The park had clean restrooms.

This is a great area with multiple swimming holes for everyone's comfort level. You can do an easy walk to a small pool, or hike past and over some rocks to a larger pool with a decent sized water falls OR do a tougher hike/climb to and even bigger pool with an even bigger water fall! If you're really courageous,... More

Sadly, on the day we visited, much access to the waterfalls was closed off due to high water. We had been here in the past and were able to hike right down to the waterfalls, but not this time. Thankfully we had visited Haliakala the day before and had already paid for park admission fees, but had we not, we... More

This is a great stop after Hana and one of the highlights of the trip. We went on March 23rd 2015 and found old stagnant water in the pools and no water flowing over the falls...not even a drop. Only the large water fall 2 miles hike up had water. After that all the water was being diverted for irrigation... More

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.
