Wow! This place is beautiful! It was late afternoon by the time we arrived, so we didn't actually swim in the pools. Instead we walked around the pools and waded in the water a little bit. I really wish we'd had time to swim, because this place was just so incredible. There were several people swimming during the time we were there though.
It costs $10/car to park. If you've visited Haleakala, save your receipt (or card if you bought an annual pass), because this will allow you to park here as well.
The path back to the pools isn't a bad walk. The waterfalls and pools are just an amazing sight! If you want to walk back to swim or wade in the pools, it requires a bit of walking across rocks - either dry rocks or through the water where there are also many rocks. Be careful and take your time - some of these are a little slippery! If you don't want to get wet, you can just continue on the path that will eventually lead you up to the road and then back around to the parking lot. Be sure to stand on the bridge that goes over the Gulch - this is a great photo op! You can look down and see all of the waterfalls and the pools they flow into - just gorgeous!
If you really want to swim in the pools, I would recommend getting there a bit earlier. We made many stops along the road to Hana, and then ended up here in the late afternoon. By that point, we knew we needed to get back on the road before it got dark, and we didn't want to be wet for the whole drive back. So, if you want to spend some time swimming, get there earlier and then plan to make some of your stops on the way back.
This place is definitely worth the trip! WOW!

It was very cool to see the waterfalls and the pools at Oheo Gulch. But I've hiked Havasupai in Arizona, which honestly has better waterfalls than any I've seen in Maui. So, for me, the beaches were a lot more fun and beatiful than Ohe'o Gulch.

Also, we hiked the trail that runs parallel to the falls, but never found the second waterfall we were searching for. It was very muddly.

Amazing spot, even if you just stop on the highway and not enter the park. The natural formation of these pools are outta site. A must do. Make sure you save some time on your day trip to Hana for this stop and a cool dip.

If you have the time, a visit to Ohe'o Gulch is well worth a visit.
After being in the car for so long driving on the road to Hana (which is gorgeous itself) it is nice to just sit someplace and be outside.
People are allowed to swim here. I didn't see anyone jumping off the bridge, but there were people diving off the rocks.
