Two things deterred me from considering watching sunrise on Haleakala, the need for reservations and the very, very early rise requirement get up there. Sunset was spectacular. I noticed peek from all over the world around me on that evening. We had all come to...More

This is a must do activity during your time in Maui! The wind was strong, loud and biting cold in September but it was not so long, we were probably only outside for an hour or so waiting for sunrise. It was amazing to watch...More

In our travels on Maui we, of course, went to view the crater. However, a walk through the crater was beyond us old folk. However, on further journeys - the road to Hana, and beyond on rough roads to Kaupo, Ulapalakua and Kula along the...More

I suffer from vertigo and motion sickness so the drive up to the summit was a challenge! That said, it was a beautiful view (although it was cloudy in the crater) and a fascinating trip up through the clouds. Just remember to take your Dramamine!...More

This was my second trip to the crater (20 years in between)! Last time we did the sunrise. This time sunset. Both are beautiful to experience. Must bring a good camera and layers. It was not as cold as expected but a sweatshirt and sweatpants...More

So we went when the park first started their "reservation" process. Yes, you have to make a reservation. If you don't have one, they won't let you watch the sunrise. If I remember correctly, you have to pay $1.50 for a reservation. But even when...More

Starting at the bottom trail head and hiking to the summit will take you about 16 miles through lush jungles and black sand deserts all the way to the observatory. You should expect to gain about 9400 vertical feet; 10,000 if you took the time...More

We decided to drive up to Haleakala during the day as we were older and didn't want to drive the road at night time. It was a good trip about half a day if you are planning to make it from Lahaina. A little scary...More

It is worth the long and winding drive to reach Haleakala Summit. The scenery is extraordinary. Make sure you stop at the Leleiwi Overlook on the way up. Don't make the mistake to think that the overlook is at the car park. It is a...More

This park was included as one of the stops with the "Road to Hana" tour. It is a beautiful park. The views are gorgeous. The paths are a bit rugged, therefore, it would be difficult for a wheelchair or persons with walking disabilities.

We used Uber several times while on Maui so that is not an issue. However, getting a cell signal at the summit of Haleakala is something that may be a challenge. I do not remember using my phone while at the summit. Maybe a... More
