Let me preface this by saying I understand closing, but be honest about why. Is it beautiful YES!! Worth a trip, YES!! But, it was closed due to water level, yet there is a sign that shows dangerous and normal water levels. If your going to say it's closed due to water level it shouldn't be flowing less than the...

We hiked to the upper falls (about 45 minutes) and when you get to them you'll be beautifully surprised, but don't forget to enjoy the hike there; it's equally beautiful. You walk thru a bamboo forest and you get to see a masive tree also, the Banyan tree on the hike. Enjoy the hike, it's beautiful. I'd do it again!... More

Unable to visit the pools or swim there because of dam problems. Hopefully it will reopen after the current storms....but check before making the long drive.

The pools are really cool even when they are closed (2/2017). The park service that manages this location leaves a lot to be desired, the gift shop is almost non existence, the view points are overgrown, and the pay station was closed diverting us to a grass lot to pay? Very disappointed in the national park service for their lack... More

It's a great place to stop and stretch your legs, and check out the beautiful waterfalls. And some days you can even swim.

I was very excited about the visit to the Seven Sacred Pools. It is exhausting to get there after the whole Hana drive. The hike up was great, but there wasn't much to see for the actual waterfall section. It was all closed off.

Unfortunately the 7 sacred pools are now closed to the public, not sure why. They are across the street from the Pipiwai trail. You can still walk to them and see them, but they're not as full as they were in years past when they allowed people to swim in them. Still nice to see, just not as impressive as... More

It's a beautiful, out-of-the-way location. Awesome views of the coastline and ocean. However, be wary if it's recently rained since they will close down the main trails for safety reasons.

So the day we visited the pools were closed due to rock slides earlier in the month making the area unsafe. But the trail surrounding the pools was open, and we opted to take that short hike before we set off on the Pipiwai trail. It was remarkable! The views from the cliffs by the ocean were phenomenal. The pools... More
