Why charge $25.00 at the top of the hill rather than the bottom?????? We drove all the way to the top of the mountain to then be confronted with a $25.00 entrance fee. Just another tourist trap as far as I'm concerned. Was it worth...More

OMG! the view was so incredible. We went for sunset and were not disappointed. The view from above the clouds is like what I imagine is heaven. It is a bit chilly up the mountain so that something warm with a hood!

Definitely worth the drive. Came after sunrise and it was still spectacular! Definitely bring water as it is at high elevation and you need to stay hydrated. Also drive slow and watch out of cyclist!

Actually, you dont hike much, it is mostly a drive. The view up there is amazing and i personally think it is a must-do in Maui. Do remember to take a jacket because it is freezing up there!!

An easy drive if you take your time and drive carefully. On a clear day you are rewarded with stunning views and interesting educational experiences at the park center on top. Well worth it. Bring a jacket as it's 30degrees colder on top!

Did not do the sunrise not the bicycle tours. Drive up late morning with very small crowds. The views were incredible and the scenery is unlike anything else on the island. When in Maui, experience as much as you can!

That's a good question. Unfortunately, I don't know the answer. The area is somewhat remote and I'm not sure if you can even find a find a taxi or Uber near the crater.
