Haleakalā National Park

Pools of ʻOheʻo Description

Commonly referred to as the Seven Sacred Pools, this series of pools fed by cascading waterfalls is a widely popular tourist attraction going back decades. Located in the beautiful Oheo Gulch, it is recommended to view the pools from a safe vantage point rather than trying to physically access them.

Best Time to Visit the Pools of ʻOheʻo

The best time to visit the pools is in the winter months to avoid the summer crush of tourists on the Road to Hāna and in the pools themselves. In the winter you’ll have the area more or less to yourself and wont have trouble getting a campsite or finding lodging.

Things to Note

The Oheo Gulch area is not recommended for swimming as violent flash floods or rock falls can occur at any time and most areas are extremely difficult to access both for visitors and emergency responders. Do your research before venturing to the pools and be prepared for serious crowds, especially in the summer months. It’s advisable to consult the park staff before planning a trip to the pools as conditions vary greatly.

The Joshua Tree Film

MTJP | Joshua Tree is the culmination of nearly a month spent exploring Joshua Tree National Park. We chose Joshua Tree because of its unique landscape. Its immense boulder piles, colorful cactus fields, endless desert expanses, and one-of-a-kind Joshua trees make for a spectacular setting. This film was shot entirely in 4K.
