Great hike to see the 400 ft waterfall through various tropical forests... bamboo forest is wonderful. Take drinking water as it is a steady incline as you hike the upward trail. Very warm the day we went. Allow plenty of time to explore along the...More

If you are on the Road to Hana, well worth the extra time to visit Ohe`o Gulch and Pipiwai Trail. The views are amazing. Unfortunately no swimming, though we could have used it because it certainly was warm in places.

But still a Spectacular view. Definitely worth the short walk out to the pools; breath-taking. The cost is $25 to get into the park but ticket can be used for 2 more consecutive days entrance into the park as well.

All the guidebooks tell you this is a must-see on the road to Hana, but I recommend some research before you set out. This will add at least an hour roundtrip past Hana and the road gets markedly worse. We knew the pools were closed...More
