Just 15 minutes south of Hana on Highway 31 on the lower slopes of Haleakala are the famous Pools of Oheo in Oheo Gulch. Here you’ll discover beautifully tiered, swimmable pools fed by waterfalls. Take a dip in these tranquil pools fed by streams originating three kilometres inland.

Here in the Kipahulu area of Haleakala National Park, you can take a nature walk tour guided by park rangers. You can also explore the many self-guided hiking trails on your own through forests of bamboo, past roaring cascades and into the green heart of the island.

Here you'll find the Pipiwai Trail, one of the best trails on the island, which leads to the 120-metre Waimoku Falls. Please consult park rangers at the Kipahulu Visitor Center before you embark on this 3 to 5 hour hike. Don’t forget your hiking shoes and expect to get muddy.
