Definitely go the speed limit and definitely get your parking pass ASAP. Those sold out in minutes every day for sunrise. We missed it and went to sunset. Still beautiful.

This is the very well maintained road leading to the top of the crater in Haleakala Park, which is quite the ride. I recommend a guided tour, especially if you are doing the sunrise, so the guide can focus on driving and telling you all about the place while you enjoy the views there and back. The switchbacks will force the driver to concentrate and likely miss the views. The pin on TripAdvisor is well off to the south. This road is road 378 on the map, that super twisty road leading to the national park.

Haleakala Crater Highway is a long drive (at least 2 hrs) from almost sea level to 10,000 ft elevation, very enjoyable drive except for people who maybe prone to motion sickness. We did this drive two times, first time in the afternoon to watch the Sunset and then the next night to watch the Sunrise. I did not meet up with any rain or clouds on the road, though we drove past the cloud level to reach the summit. There are several interesting scenic stops along the way; one to not miss is the Kalahaku Overlook. If you are lucky, you might even come across the Nene Goose. My suggestion would be to drive this highway the first time during daytime before you drive at night to become somewhat familiar. Gas up tankful before you start. If going for the Sunset, look up National Park website for permit information.

Driving up to the 10,000 ft elevation of this dormant volcano was great. Was especially interesting driving up into the clouds, started raining, and then seeing the sun come out after we passed the clouds.. All this took place in about 15 minutes of the total 1 hour of driving. So cool...

I drove to the summit before sunrise and it was spectacular viewing. Arriving in the dark I did not notice the lookout building (with bathroom access). about 100 yards east of the main parking lot. I hiked the road to a higher lookout building at the peak. About a 1/2 mile walk. There is a much smaller parking lot there that fills up very early, and they then block that access road. I was SO GLAD I had decided not to do the bike ride tour. That looked like a dangerous and scary ride, for the experienced and adventurous!
