Wailea to Haleakala National Park Drive Time

Hello,

I wish to see the sunrise next week at Haleakala. What time should I be on the road from Wailea?

Thanks!

Walnut, are you aware that there are two parking areas up there? The very top one is much smaller, so if you want to be up there, do leave early! They will shut the gate if it is full, so you won't be driving up there just to find out that it is full.

The lower parking area has a lot more space, and the sunrise should be just as good from there. The advantage of going to the top, is that there is a small kind of hut, which will break the wind.
