A beautiful series of pools but closed to swimming.
Jul 2021
We'd hoped to be able to at least wade in the pools, but the trails down to the pools were closed. I asked a ranger about it, and the system that they used to detect potential flash floods had broken -- over 18 months ago.

I wish they'd get it fixed!

Pools closed - permanently
Jul 2021 • Couples
Do not go if you expect to be able to swim in the pools. They are permanently closed. You can do a small loop 1mile to see the lower pool and the ocean and another trail about 2miles to go see the bamboo forest. For $25 parking fee.

Viewing only-no swimming
Jun 2021 • Friends
Viewing only … you can’t go on the beach or swim in the water at the park. They have closed all the trails leading to the pools.

Yes, there will be mud ..
Apr 2021 • Couples
My wife and I took the reverse road to Hana starting in Kula to get to the location - this rarely traveled road itself was quite an adventure. Some parts were paved, others were not, but the drive itself made it worth it! Hugging cliffs on super narrow roads, spectacular coastline, dodging free range cattle - we rarely saw another car. Real, rural Hawaii! When we got to the trail to go to the pools tho, it was a bit of a let down .. super crowded, muddy, slippery and a gauntlet for my 50 something wife who is not used to hiking. When we got up to the spot where the first falls could be viewed, we turned back. We never saw any pools or even much of the thunderous water you could hear. We had the impression before we went that you could just stroll up to pools where water falls were pouring in, but that was not the case really. The forest was cool tho.

Early Morning was worth it for the uncrowded experience!
Jan 2020
We left Kaanapali at 7am and went the back way around so we could get here first, and arrived around 9:30, so it was not crowded at all! It just happened to be gloomy, which is unpredictable, but so so happy we beat the crowds! Would recommend doing the drive backwards if you have a jeep.

death defying
May 2020
May 1973. Walked solo. Tried to get to the bottom of a horrendous sounding waterfall (Makahiku) Had no idea what it was, but it sounded good. Damn near died. Pulled myself out of a near death experience. Saved myself, should not have survived. Before all this tourist trails and beautiful experience stuff. Stay on the trail.Don't let me scare you off. I'm sure it's safe these days.

Closed for swimming
Mar 2020 • Family
Took back road in. Its in good condition overall. About 3 hrs from Kahana.

Good weather. Around 76 at the pools. Ranger said they are closed due to high water. I dont get that. Been coming here since the 60s long before there was a ranger station here back in the days you just pulled into a field to park. The pools you normally swim in looked just fine to me.

I think this is a case of the park service being over protective.

We enjoy the drive - beautiful and rugged on back road, rain forest on Hana Hwy. Its up to you to decide if 6 hrs in the car is worth it with the risk the pools will be closed.

Easy Hike
Jan 2020
Once you have parked in the Haleakala NP parking area you can take the easy hike to the pools. But do the entire loop trail since you will find other things to see.

This place blew my mind

Do the entire hike. You will be thankful for it. The bamboo forrest is mezmerizing and the plants and way that the trail is maintained is beautiful.
