First and foremost, this sunrise is just...look at my pics. Should have sent a poet. Second, I highly recommend you take a guided tour. They have perpetual access and this is not a road you want to drive on in at night while drowsy. Third, the crater is just a spectacular ecological site of immense size. One of the highlights of our Hawaiian trip.

One of the most incredible experiences for dawn. Must do. It’s cold so rug up, and make sure you take time to visit the crater after the sun is up

We originally tried to get reservations for the sunrise but was unable to snag the reservations which defaulted to the sunset and I'm glad it worked it out that way. I'm not a fan of getting up at 3 am and dealing with cranky kids the rest of the day! The view from the national park is amazing. Where else can you be above the clouds to watch the sun set. Make sure to bring a coat/sweater or a blanket. Also, the road up/down is windy so keep that in mind if you have someone in your party that is prone to get motion sickness. Bring some medicine or a plastic bag just in case ;-) I have a full video review on youtube if you look up my username or click on the link in my profile.

Haleakala National Park is a beautiful place to visit in Maui. There two sections of the park - One at the summit and the other one on Kipahulu at the southeast coast. This review is based on visit to the summit area. There are so many things to do there that one is sure to find their favorite activity. Main activities are: Scenic drives, Look outs, Hiking, Guided bike tours, Dark sky observation, and awesome Sunset and Sunrise. A great variety of hiking trails are available ranging from short and day hikes and backpacking multi-day hikes. The hikes also offer variety in features. For example, Hosmer Grove offers a trail through lush forest, while Sliding Sands trail offers fantastic volcanic scenery. As far as scenic overlooks, the one not to miss is Kalahaku Overlook which provides breathtaking views of the volcanic crater and cinder cones. I would say the two things not to miss in Haleakala are the Summit Sunset and Sunrise. Sunset viewing is more accessible in the sense that there are no permit requirements and not much pre-planning is required. One just has to be present at the summit before the Sunset. But, be prepared with some warm clothing since it gets pretty cold when the sun starts going down. On the other hand, for Sunrise viewing, entry permit will need to purchased on-line well ahead. And then one will have to drive the long mountain road in the night to be at the summit before Sunrise. It could be sub-zero cold at the summit at that time, so one will have to be adequately dressed. One should also arrive early enough to observe and enjoy the awesome dark sky. My recommendation is that driving to the Summit during day time (for Sunset) would provide familiarity with the mountain road for the drive at night (for Sunrise). The only disappointment with the Park was that the Visitor Center feature is not as elaborate as at other National Parks. There are actually two visitor centers; the main one is at 7,00 ft elevation, and the smaller one is at the summit. But, the exhibits are still informative and the Park film is well worth watching. If you are in Maui, plan a visit to Haleakla for an unforgettable experience.
