$15 gets you through the gate and adventures begin. I'd like to suggest doing the hike to the waterfall first where you will go through the bamboos forest. The head to seven sacred pools and swim to cool down.

From our condo in Kihei it only took 1 3/4 hours of easy paced driving to reach the 10,000 foot summit. Had been here before but never had the awesome clear weather we experienced on this visit. We could easily see the upper half of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa on the Big Island. Totally blue skies with a cloud... More

To be 10,000 feet up on a volcano, above the cloud line, looking across a landscape that seems like is from another world is an awesome, humbling experience. I've been up on Haleakala two times and both were magical. This time we rented a car and drove up ourselves. In the past we went with a tour group (which was... More

Loved it. On the Sliding Sands Trail, you can see where you're going to be hiking for miles. Just remember, when you go down, you have to come back up...

We didn't bother going for sunrise and I doubt that it's worth getting up stupidly early to do so. It's a good 2 hour drive from Kihei and probably 2.5 hours from Lahaina I would think. Traffic was frustrating enough even when there weren't many cars on the road simply because over-taking is very difficult and few people it seems... More

Cool sunset, not sure if it was worth getting up at 3 in the morning. It was fun to be above the clouds.

Well we got up at 2:30am to travel across the island to see sunset on top of Haleakala as we have done several times before. We were the first to arrive at 4:00am. Now the wait. Over the next 2 hours the parking area was packed! As it turns out sunset nobody shows up and it is just as beautiful... More

Many people told us we should go there for sunrise. We are so glad we didn't. The road to the top is a 2-lane twisty, turny road that would have been scary to navigate in the dark. We left our hotel at 6:00 A.M. and drove in the daylight! What a sight when you reach the top. The summit is... More

It was Martin Luther Kings Day on the day we went there, so the ticket there is free. We were very happy to get there early and were able to do some stargazing. The sunrise was thrilling and breathtaking. Aatfer the sunrise we went down to the park for a hike. It was amazing to be inside of the a... More

We watched the sun rise here, and haven't seen a more beautiful sunrise. Well worth the very early morning drive (our tour bus picked us up at 2:30am). Be sure to prepare for the cold though, it is about 30 degrees up there and VERY WINDY.
