Ohe’o Gulch, also known as the Seven Sacred Pools, is a popular destination for visitors to Haleakala National Park (East side).The area is known for its scenic beauty, with a series of pools and waterfalls that are fed by the Kipahulu Stream. Just steps away you’ll be able to enjoy beautiful views of the coast line and black sand beach. Kuloa Point trail that leads to O’heo Gulch is a well maintained 0.5 miles loop trail with informational placards regarding the native habitat and the history of the area.Please note that access to the beach and pools is restricted so no swimming is allowed.
– Kuloa Point Trail is a part of Haleakala National Park so an entry fee is required. So far it’s $30 per vehicle and should be paid by a credit card. The pass you get is valid for 3 days. You can use it to enter the Summit area of Haleakala (West side).
– In my opinion it’s not worth to come all the way to the east side of Haleakala to see just the O’heo Gulch. I would recommend to add Pipiwai trail to your itinerary. See my previous post – Pipiwai Trail for additional tips.
