Kuloa Point Trail to Pools of 'Ohe'o

Waterfall

Lookout/Views

The Kuloa Point Trail to the Pools of 'Ohe'o at Haleakala National Park in Maui, Hawaii is an easy 0.7 mile loop hike that leads out to view points of the Pools of 'Ohe'o and the 'Ohe'o Gulch.

Along the trail you'll get views of the Pools of 'Ohe'o, the ocean, a large banyan tree, and archeological sights.

The trail lies within the Kipahulu District and can only be accessible by the Hana Highway. From the parking lot, stay right at the trail signs for the Kuloa Point Trail to head towards the Pools of 'Ohe'o. About half-way through the hike, if you follow the loop clockwise, you'll get views of the first waterfall at the top of the pools. Continue following the trail downhill to more lookout points until you reach a small spur trail that leads out to Kuloa Point. From Kuloa Point, you'll get views of the entirety of the Pools of 'Ohe'o.

Swimming: Swimming is not encouraged at the Pools of 'Ohe'o considering deaths have occurred there. As of 2018, the Pools of 'Ohe'o have been shut down indefinitely due to rock slide hazards.

Fees: There's a $25 entry fee for Haleakala National Park. The ticket you receive is good for 7-days (make sure to check the Haleakala National Park's site), but I highly encourage you to purchase the $50 annual pass if you plan to visit more national parks within the next 365 days.
