You need reservations from the National Park Service to see the sunrise so plan ahead, or go with a company as part of a tour. It's cold for the sunrise so dress accordingly. The sunrise for us was not that great, but the experience was...More

Great day driving up to the volcano. When you get at the entrance of the park you have to pay $25.00. I believe it's reasonable. The park is very well maintained and they have many hiking trails and viewpoints at different altitudes to see the...More

This is MUST SEE if you are in Maui. If you don't love driving I would definitely recommend finding a tour company that takes you up to the top, we went with Maui Downhill. Not only do the tour companies know the road well, they...More

My wife and I have been to Maui 14 times and last went up to Haleakala to cruise down on a bike in 1997. We didn't bike down this year, but it was SO well worth it to drive up again. The view is AMAZING....More

The views were awe-inspiring. Even without doing a sunrise or sunset visit, well worth the drive to the summit.

This is a must for all! I recommend going just before sunset. If you do, bring a picnic with wine, cheese & coffee. Don't forget a sweater because it gets chilly as the sunsets. There is a lot of hype about riding down on a...More

This is a very safe road- we just did it 10 days ago. I rate it as my top activity while In Maui. Enjoy being above the clouds and prepare for much cooler temperatures.

Aloha. I don't think there is a pass necessary for sunset; which will be ~7:10 PM at this time of year. I think the sunrise pass is the much more popular one. There will be a $25 (3-day) pass that would need to be purchased... More
