Hike to the Seven Sacred Pools

Pipiwai Trailhead - Search Nearby - Added by The Outbound Collective

Hike to and swim in Maui's natural, beautiful ‘Ohe’o pools near Hana, HI. This is a quick, scenic hike to amazing swimming holes.

This hike departs from the Kpahulu Visitor Center and heads out along the Kuloa Trail. The trail will take you through a bamboo forest and past several pools and falls. Be sure to get there early as the later it gets in the day, the more crowded the pools get.

Hike the route counter-clockwise and be aware of any potential rogue waves as you head near the ocean. Also keep in mind that you should check current conditions at the Visitor Center before heading out on the hike to be aware of any issues and swimming safety when you choose to do the hike.

Closed often

It seems like these pools are rarely open. However when they are open they are pretty fun. The water is fresh water but it is often much colder than the ocean. There are som cliff jumping options into the pools as well which is fun.
