Stunning views await you at the top of the 10,023 foot summit!! Not as harrowing as the road to Hana and no waterfalls. But yes a beautiful view. We returned to where we did a downhill bike ride nearly 24 years ago. The view is amazing.

We drove up. 37 mile not easy road.
But when you are on the top, it is amazing.
Wonderful views, a lot things to learn. Great experience, we reached 10000 feet. You are above the clouds.
Crater is breathtaking.
Recommended.

Went for the sunset rather than the sunrise. Unfortunately, bad weather interfered with our views of the sunset. Incredible views of themountain and the crater, incredible stories. The drive is not for the faint of heart.

Many go here for the sunrise however mid day is warmer and also very appealing. We always enjoy our kid day trips to the top of the mountain

Be prepared for a long winding road on the way to the top. We had to visit twice on our trip, because the first time it was misting and the wind was blowing about 30 mph. That makes for an unpleasant visit when the temperature is 43 F. At least on the second trip, it was clear and 45 F. Like the guidebooks tell you, wear long pants and a jacket, because it is chilly. It was fun to watch people dressed in tank tops and shorts. We hoped to see nene at the visitor's center, but saw none either trip. However, the silversword nursery was a highlight.
