A beautiful but dangerous place. The views are breathtaking, but it is always very windy because you are right the ocean.

We got lucky and made all the way there on a sunny day in which the park was allowing everyone to swim. The park is nice and the drive there is amazing. The pools are pretty cool but very crowded during the afternoon. The waterfalls are o.k., there are better waterfalls on the way. On a positive note, I think... More

Very hot and sticky this time of year and swimming was not allowed the day we went due to possible flash flooding. This hike was difficult for me but I did it! The views were incredible and the waterfalls spectacular. Don't be discouraged by some of the other reviews. It is well worth the hike.

Views are spectacular. Nice freshwater dip on drive to Hana. Definitely a highlight of my time in Maui. Hike the awesome 3.75 mile trail above first!!!!

My girlfriend and I were spurred to a spontaneous camping trip during our visit to Maui and boy was it worth it. Of course the drive around the south end of the island is not for the faint of heart but getting to this unspoiled part of the island is really amazing. The campground at Ohe'o gulch we found very...

We visited here after doing the Pipiwai trail. Got here at 11am and it was busting with people, kids all over. We stayed for a minute, to say we visited, then were off.

We stopped here as part of a Road to Hana tour. It was warm out - a swim would have been nice, but the tour guide warned us to wash carefully if we went in the water because of parasites. The site was very pretty. The short hike was nice. There are rest rooms at the park. Since we were... More

Going in July, it was very crowded. We did the three Mike hike then cooled ourselves off in the pools. The view is beautiful, the water is cold. We would not go just for this, but combined with the hike, it was great. The drive to go is a waterfall display and very beautiful.

We drove the road to Hana and headed directly to the national park. There is a fee to enter and park, but the pass is good for 3 days so you can also drive to the summit within the 3 day period with this pass. We decided to hike the Pipiwai trail first, then had a lunch at the picnic... More

My wife and I made the adventurous drive around the south side of Maui on the Piilani Hwy to get to this location. Recommend an SUV or something with decent ground clearance for the drive and definitely don't attempt it following hard rains. About 15 miles from the park the road goes single lane with rough/uneven surface. Lots of blind... More
