This was our second favorite spot on the road to Hana. It's a short hike from the parking area and it's in the National park so there is a $20 entrance fee. The pools and falls are beautiful but very cold for this old man. Beware, they can close at any time due to flooding from heavy rains up the... More

This was our last stop on the Hana Road. Easy hike to the falls but weeds were overgrown on the trails to get there making it more difficult for the elderly folks we saw. Even the few picnic tables along the way were unusable due to the overgrowth. The falls were beautiful with fantastic ocean views.

Sure, you can do the Pipiwai trail, but if you're pressed for time (or not into hiking), the 0.5 mile loop down to the O'heo Gulch is well worth the $20 admission into the Haleakala National Park. The "Seven Sacred Pools" lived up to the hype, not just because of the spectacular views of the pools, but because of the... More

This is a very pretty area, but we were not allowed din the water, and the biggest waterfall was closed while we were there. Total bummer, but a good hike and great views. Hike is very easy for anyone who doesn't have injury or disability. Good family hike.

I visited Ohe'o Gulch yesterday for the second time in my life. The falls really were one of the highlights of my Hana Highway trip 15 years ago. Unfortunately, since then there was a tragic flash flood that has dramatically changed the experience. Now the parks service monitors water levels and apparently closes the falls frequently during the rainy times.... More

Got to qualify this with watch your allergies here. Something had both my wife and I coughing, sneezing and blowing our noses. Other than that, a very happy way to end (or as we did mid-point) the Road to Hana. The scenery is beautiful, the hike is not difficult and well worth the effort.

After several hours of winding roads and (hopefully) stopping to swim in a few waterfalls, Ohe'o Gulch is the perfect end. There are a couple of short walks, including one that takes you up to the top of the falls and through a stunning bamboo forest. Unfortunately, both the pools and the last 1/2 mile of the walk were closed... More

Forget those lovely pictures you see of people frolicking in the beautiful waterfalls! The reality is that the Oheo Gulch is all fenced off from the public and you have to walk all the way down to the ocean and strain your neck to get a peek at it from a distance. Combine it with the fact that the trail... More

After driving for 5 hours, we got to the aka seven sacred pools and found out they were closed for the public...and only one mile of the trail was opened since it had been raining the trail was muddy, not worth the long dangerous drive, the views through out the drive are breathtaking but the road is in bad shape,...

This stop is one of the few that has a entrance fee to get in $20 per car. They no longer allow you to jump in the pools and if there is even a bit of rain, they shut down the swimming in the pools also.
