Oheo Gulch

Haleakala National Park, Kula, Hawaii, 96713

The basics

On the eastern edge of Haleakalā National Park, the pools are easily reachable from Hana, about 12 miles (19 kilometers) to the north. Visiting requires paying the national park entrance fee at the Kipahulu Visitor Center, which grants access to all park facilities, plus Haleakala National Park on Maui and Volcanoes and Pu’uhonua O Honaunau national parks on the Big Island. Maui jungle adventure and sightseeing tours sometimes pass Ohe'o as they drive along the Hana Highway—but few stop for a dip.

Things to do in Haleakalā National Park

Home to Ohe'o Gulch, Haleakalā National Park is also known as the “house of the sun.” Once you’ve paid the entrance fee to visit the Ohe'o pools, you’re free to explore the rest of the park. Many visitors book a reservation and arrive early to watch the sunrise, which can be seen from four viewing locations: Red Hill Summit, Kalahaku Overlook, Leleiwi Overlook, and the Haleakalā Visitor Center. Near the gulch, the popular Pīpīwai Trail leads past a massive banyan tree to the 400-foot (122-meter) Waimoku Falls.
