'Ohe'o Gulch

'Ohe'o Gulch, also known as the Seven Sacred Pools, is located past Hana on the southern coast of Maui. It is located in Haleakala National Park near the area of Kipahulu.

Although the gulch is known as the Seven Sacred Pools, there are not seven pools. This name was made up by the owner of the Hotel Hana to attract visitors to the area. It sounds better than 'Ohe'o Gulch.

A series of waterfalls and pools make up the area. There are also hikes to other waterfalls nearby. Since this is part of the National Park, the entrance fee paid here can be used if you are driving up to the top of Haleakala within three days.
