The 'Ohe'o Gulch Falls, or Seven Sacred Pools, is the small set of pools and cascades found on 'Ohe'o Gulch Stream at Haleakala National Park, at Kipahulu. They are only about 30 ft. or so in total height. They are also extremely popular for swimming, but can also be dangerous and prone to flash flooding. People have died here before, so be careful.
To reach the 'Ohe'o Gulch pools, walk from the parking area down towards the ocean. A 1 mile long loop trail goes down to the pools and ocean, then up and around, back to the parking area. It is very easy and suitable for children (but watch your children closely in or around the pools).
The name, Seven Sacred Pools, is a rather interesting name. It originates from around the year 1947, by the Hotel Hana in an attempt to attract visitors to the area and stop by the hotel for lunch on the way. The pools are not sacred, and there are not seven pools here either.
