Unfortunately the 7 sacred pools are now closed to the public, not sure why. They are across the street from the Pipiwai trail. You can still walk to them and see them, but they're not as full as they were in years past when they allowed people to swim in them. Still nice to see, just not as impressive as... More

So the day we visited the pools were closed due to rock slides earlier in the month making the area unsafe. But the trail surrounding the pools was open, and we opted to take that short hike before we set off on the Pipiwai trail. It was remarkable! The views from the cliffs by the ocean were phenomenal. The pools... More

A beautiful walk and scenery. Take some extra time to walk out be the ocean. It was a shame it was closed and we couldn't swim.

We hit Haleakala summit yesterday so today we went to other side of the park. Long, long drive but it is a lovely spot - we walked the Pipiwai trail up into the bamboo forest. It's a pretty hot walk and slightly awkward underfoot but you do feel as though you have achieved something! As always - a warm mention... More

The prize at the end of the Hana Highway. This is sometimes known as the seven sacred pools. It is a short hike to the oceanfront with waterfalls going right into the ocean. The upper trail was closed when I was there due to high water.

The pools and falls are beautiful. We didn't get to swim in the pools since there was a landslide earlier this month and it didn't seem the National Park service was in a hurry to clean this up. The pools were closed. Disappointed to pay the entrance fee and not be able to take full advantage.

Glad that we went, but some of the area is closed down so the exploration and appreciation was short. I would only visit if you area also doing something else in the park.

We had an amazing time just looking in awe at this gorgeous site. Such an amazing beauty and you can get in to go swimming and just enjoy the romantic atmosphere and beautiful waterfalls. We loved it
