The road up to the top was a reasonably easy drive, given that I come from the flatlands where switchbacks are almost unknown. Views from the top were spectacular. Clouds moved past occasionally but changes in lighting made the scenery that much more interesting. We...More
As a resident cyclist, it's been an ambition to try and ride up Haleakala. The road has many wonderful views and the staff at the National Park are very helpful and friendly. Weather can be very unpredictable, so it's good to heed the clothing advice...More
I love any road with thrilling views and switch back turns. This makes it to a high place on my list. The views on the way up (as long as you’re not shrouded in clouds) were magnificent! If you are shrouded in clouds, then that’s...More
In our dozen or so trips to Maui, this is the first time we visited Haleakala National Park. It took us about 1.5 hrs from Kihei, one way, leaving around 8:15 am. We went on a sunny day and by the time we were heading...More

There are some dizzying views IF clear but these are distant views. The slope is gentle along roadside and the guardrails are generous. There are no sheer drops anywhere on the drive so it is surprisingly calm for a "mountain drive". As it goes from 0 to 3500 to 7000 to 10000 feet there are different areas in which you could turn around. It is not a straight 0 to 10000 feet climb as I thought it would be.
