Sacred Falls State Park is a state park located near Hauula on the north shore of the Hawaiian island of Oahu. The park encompasses Kaluanui gulch and the waterfalls at its end, after which it is named. The park was closed indefinitely after a fatal rockfall on the 9th of May 1999 in the canyon where the waterfall is located, killing eight hikers and injuring many more. [1]
