Drove the “Road to Hana.” Horrible drive. The roads are not well maintained; potholes and overgrown brush made every corner dangerous. The narrow one lane sections and bridges are totally unnecessary. If you want to do the hike, drive down in the dark, pre-dawn—there is...More

We didn't go here hoping to cliff jump but we did want to see the pools. The trails are not being maintained and there are fences that the grass has grown all the way up. You can't even see the pools from the trails. The...More

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.

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

We did the Hana Rd on our own using the Shaka guide & some advice from locals. They told us go straight to Hana and hit the falls on the way back. It was a long day in our mustang convertible. Started about 9:30 after...More

Don't take the road to Hana just to see this attraction. I'm sure it used to be very fun to swim in, but now it is just a trail beside the pools that doesn't even really show much. The Pipiwai trail is at the same...More

The Gulch is sometimes referred to as the 7 Sacred Pools of O’Heo; however, depending on how you count them, there are either more or less than 7, but in no way are there 7. Depending on the recent rain level, the “pools” are either...More

Due to come flooding in the area, we were unable to get the full view, but I’m glad we went so we could at least try to see the iconic waterfalls.

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.
