The Seven Sacred Pools

Lindsay Hancock gives us a tour through the “Seven Sacred Pools”. Falling off the mountain is fresh mineral water, crashing into the black sand beach, breathtaking!

The Pools of ‘Ohe’o (pupularly called the “Seven Sacred Pools”) are the most popular attraction in East Maui. Beautiful waterfalls, pools, in an absolutely stunning setting. ‘Ohe’o Gulch is a string of pools and waterfalls, starting many miles up the mountain, that flow one after another, cascading over dramatic waterfalls, leading to the rugged Kipahulu coastline and the deep-blue Hawaiian ocean. To get there you must first enter the National Park facilities at ‘Ohe’o, and pay a small fee to the ticket booth. You them park and walk about a quarter mile along a beautiful trail to reach the lower pools. from there you can either relax in the refreshing mineral water of the pools, or you can continue along the Pipiwai Trail, which passes stunning vistas, pools, waterfalls (including the 200′ Makahiku Falls), an incredible bamboo forest, and ending at the base of the stunning 400 ft high Waimoku Falls.
