Hana, Hawaii Map

One of my all time favorite trails. Enter the Haelakala National Park ($20 parking fee) and park near the Visitors center unless you plan to camp overnight. Easy 10 minute Lower Loop trail takes you to Oheo Gulch and the Seven Sacred Pools. The Loop will take you back to Kuloa Point where Pipiwai trail is a must! Moderate hike but the serenity and scenery are amazing; large banyon tree, bamboo forest, breath-taking views of the stream and a waterfall at the end. Both hikes are open but the pools and touching the waterfall are closed due to flash floods and a fatality. Enjoy!

Awesome!!! You will enjoy every minute of the hike there are a ton of views and waterfalls to see along the way!

Super pretty trail that leads to large beautiful waterfall. The bamboo forest walkway of the trail is AMAZING and was the best part. Definitely a must see

Great diversity in plant life and falls at the end. Also, the description should be updated -- the elevation change according to the park is much less than 1600 ft. More like 600-800.

Drove the Hana highway to Hana town and went to this park back in 92'. The black sand beach is unreal. Don't get to see that many places. There was a blow hole out on the lava rocks here too. I could have watched the waves crash against the rocks here all day. They were really rolling into this bay the day we were there. Wild!!

This beach is epic!
