So after hours of driving, we were really looking forward to swimming in the pools. There is nothing sacred about this area, the name "Seven Sacred Pools" was created as a marketing tool to attract more visitors. The day we visited the water was flowing...More

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

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
