Ohe'O Gulch Pools (a.k.a. Seven Sacred Pools) Maui

A series of lovely waterfalls and tranquil pools flow through the O'heo Gulch and into the ocean nearby.

The Pipiwai Streams feeds these falls and numerous pools starting 2 miles inland. The easiest to reach and the nicest pools are located near the shoreline.Seven sacred pools

The land where the Seven Sacred Pools are situated was donated to the Haleakala National Park system so that the pools would forever be open to the public.O'heo Gulch Pools (a.k.a. Seven Sacred Pools) Maui2

This is a natural playground for locals and tourists alike. There is hiking, historical sites, "cliff" jumping, pool swimming, and interesting people watching.  Use extreme caution before jumping into the pools - check for hidden rocks and depth of pool first.   NEVER dive into the pools. Lava rock is VERY slippery when wet. The area is always crowded on weekends.  Even though there is a large gravel parking lot, it is often full.  Come early to get a spot or stay in Hana to assure an early arrival.  

The Pipiwai Trail, above the Seven Sacred Pools, is one of the best hikes on Maui. It is 4 miles roundtrip, gaining 650-feet in elevation. It takes 2 1/2 - 5 hours to hike, depending on how much nature loving you do.

There are several great waterfalls along the route with the final destination being Waimoku Falls, falling 400-feet down a sheer lava rock wall.Pipiwai Trail infinity pool

Along the Pipiwai Trail is Infinity Pool. It has a row of thick rocks that keep you from plunging over the 200-foot waterfall during normal flow times. This pool is much more secluded than the more popular Seven Sacred Pools.


Ohe'O Gulch and the Seven Sacred Pools is located just north of Kipahulu Visitor Center.

Useful Information:

Take Highway 31 south from Hana. The parking lot for all falls and trails is located just past Mile Marker #42 on the ocean side of the road.
