We drove the awful Road to Hana 4 hours to get here. Our nerves were shot from all the near-death experiences on the road there. Then as we drive in and pay, it starts downpouring rain, We asked for a refund and ladies in the...More

The seven pools it probably the one of, if not the most iconic destinations on the road to Hana. The views are quite spectacular. Unfortunately the pools are closed indefinitely for swimming but they are still worth a look see.

My family took the road to Hana with the big finale being Ohe'o Gulch. The walk way down to the pools was closed all you could do is look from quite a distance. Not very impressive from that perspective. I understand people have been injured...More

After the somewhat white-knuckle drive to Hana, and than on to Ohe'o, it's nice to take a little time to just appreciate nature's beauty. There is a modestly strenuous hike from the ranger station where you park to the gulch itself, I would guess a...More

We stopped during our Road to Hana trip. There were no obvious free parking spots or good places to pull off on the road. So you're left with buying the 3 day National Park pass - would be good if you were driving to Haleakala...More

I was twice at Ohe'o gulch back in 1987 and 1988, so I'm not aware if one can still swim here. In addition to the remarkable beauty of the site itself, we had a wonderful hike uphill for about 2 hours or so in the...More
