Haleakala is amazing even if you don't go for sunrise

The experience you get when exploring Haleakala is unlike anything else in Maui, let alone most of the world, and that alone makes it an absolute must see on your visit. We... read more

The experience you get when exploring Haleakala is unlike anything else in Maui, let alone most of the world, and that alone makes it an absolute must see on your visit. We traveled with young kids and so we didn't make the sunrise journey and it was still 100% worth it. There is great hiking and no shortage of amazing... More

If you come to Maui, this is one of the places you must visit. The drive might be a little long and curvy but it is worth it. You can go really early in the morning, or around noon time, it can get covered with clouds really fast between 3-5 PM and this can ruin your views of the mountain... More

if you've got the time and energy, then a three day back-packing trip down into the Haleakala Crater will provide you with a visual experience way beyond the views most people get from the rim. slightly less than a year ago our family of four (including our two teenage daughters) hiked down the Sliding Sands trail to stay at the...

Do not visit Maui without doing this! How many places do you think you can drive from sea level to 10023 feet on a dormant volcano (often above the clouds) in only 38 miles? Note: Bring a jacket, it could be very cold at the summit.

If you want to see the sun set: it is 10,000 ft (3,000m.) high so bring warm clothes. We brought those lightweight feather coats that can be rolled into tiny packs (great for luggage) plus snickers and socks; the terrain is rough so flip-flop or sandals not great. You can go all the way to the summit in your car... More

Situated over 9000+ft above sea level, It is the best place to Watch Sun rise from the park.Its a unique experience we never forget.

I went to the park website in advance and reserved 3 different days during our trip. It was $1.50 per day to do this. If you want to go for the sunrise at the summit, you need this to get into the park. We picked what sounded like the best day for this journey and left our condo in Lahaina... More

We were staying in our timeshare on O'ahu but made a point to fly the day before to Maui, so we could get up early and drive to the summit (10,203 feet) and see the sunrise. You MUST have a reservation to be allowed in to the park between 3AM and 7AM, so be sure to do that online up... More

If you go to Maui, you must get up early and see the sun-rise. It is worth the lost sleep and relatively long drive. I highly recommend it!

It's worth the drive! The third tallest mountain in the world measured from the sea floor. Quite and experience. My only suggestion, go up the mountain early in the day. We left Kahului at 8:30, made it to the peak (driving slowly and carefully) at 10:10, and clouds began to roll in around 10:45. We were ready to start the... More
