The drive from Hana to Haleakala (Kipahulu area) is more narrow than the road to Hana, but still worth it. Once you get to national park visitor center, be sure to ask about the water levels in the Makahiku and Waimoku falls on the Pipiwai...More

It is worth the drive to see this beautiful waterfall. The facilities at the park are clean and efficient. It is a short hike to see the waterfalls and it is well worth the trip on the Road to Hana.

Beautiful view, unfortunately it was raining before so we could not get into the water. Hiking trail is only 10 to 15 minutes.

When we visited in May, we were hoping to swim in the pools! But the water was absolutely raging when we arrived and it was incredibly unsafe to do so! But such a majestic amazing view. So impressive to watch the enormous volumes of water...More

I've been here several time and every time, I am amazed. It's beautiful, just beautiful. One time, our drive to Ohe-Gulch was a rainy one. On several stops locals mentioned to me Ohe'o Gulch will be raging. Once we got there, at first it was...More

We knew prior to going here that the pools were closed due to all of the rain that they had been having and it was raining off and on all day when we took the drive. It was a short walk to the gulch and...More

We were camping at the campground so fairly early in the morning. Maybe 10am or so.
