I'm not sure if it is because of the time I visited, but I didn't found it very attractive, it is few cascades of waterfalls.

Came here to see the sacred pools, and could only see one pool. The rest are off limits, and you aren’t even allowed to stop at the bridge to get a pic of the upper pools. The hike out to the ocean overlook or point...More

We've tried to make it here on various other trips and always ran out of time! Made it with enough time to play this time, but the falls were chained off (govt. shutdown or other reason??) We were still able to do the path around...More

Just the perfect end to the road to Hana. It made the trip more than worthwhile. Hiking up to the falls through the bamboo forest is a must do and one of the most awe inspiring experiences of my life.

We visited here and spent time eating a quiet lunch at this majestic destination. Everyone on Maui is so friendly and relaxed. We will now visit here every year.

You can’t swim in the pools. If you can’t get in free and aren’t planning on hiking skip this. There are awesome waterfalls you can swim in and enjoy. It’s such a shame!! We paid $25 hiked the short trail was super hot with 2...More

On our road to Hana we stopped in many locations that had short hikes to amazing swim holes with spectacular views of waterfalls. So after doing all of those for free paying for this place was a let down. You are NOT allowed to swim....More

On a bus tour, only had 30 minutes there to walk down to the lower part, which has the water entering the ocean and not a lot of pools to see. With more time, the upper hike would have been fun, but wear bug spray...More

That would be a long hard day with all that driving but you could definately do it. The pass for the park is good for 3 days so I would recommend splitting it into 2 days.
