We stopped at each opportunity and hiked. The changing topography, views and experience is incredible Each one more beautiful than the last. Take some time at the top and ask the helpful staff questions. On the way down, make sure to hike at least 1.1 miles on the Halemau'u Trailhead to the valley rim - great view on a trail that is not very challenging to that point. The restrooms were impeccable - best I have seen at any national park.

Seeing the summit of Haleakala was truly spectacular. It is so surreal to look out and see the clouds rolling into the landscape for you are above the cloud line.

The view at sunset is spectacular. Warm clothes are a must. We had a thirty degree drop from Kihei to the top. We have been before and knew what to pack. Sunrise is better yet. A breakfast, lunch or dinner at the Kula Lodge is special. Great food, easy, inviting atmosphere with wonderful fish and deserts.

We've visited 50 of the 59 USA National Parks (we're from Australia!) and a recent visit to Haleakala NP was an amazing experience. The sunrise at the crater rim was amazing, but the hike down along the Sliding Sands Trail was even better. And don't forget the section of the Park down on the coast past Hana. The drive out there is awesome and the waterfalls here make this a park with so much to offer.

A trip (or two) to Haleakala National Park is definitely something you'll want to include in your Maui itinerary! There is a vast variety of activities, sights and unique experiences to enjoy. We visited the summit for sunrise, followed by a viewing of the crater from the visitor's center near the summit where we got lots of great information from Wendy about our options for hikes in the area of the crater. We proceeded Klahaku Overlook for an absolutely incredible view of the crater and cinder cones, then on to the Halemau'u Trailhead where we hiked in through the alpine scrubland to an absolutely breathtaking view out over the valley and crater. On our way out of the park that day, we stopped and took in the loop trail at Hosmer's Grove where we sat and listened to the birdsong and marvelled at the disparity between the native scrubland of the area and the invasive plantings of eucalyptus and cedar, etc. done by Hosmer.
On another day, we visited the south end of the park where we hiked in to Waimoku falls and swam at the Pools of Oheo. Both unique experiences you don't get to do every day! The falls are incredibly tall, and I liked the curve of the cliff they cascade over but equally spectacluar is the journey through the bamboo forest to get there! Swimming at the Pools of Oheo was a refreshing reward after the hot hike up and down from the falls, and the view is spectacular!
Do yourself a favour and visit the park - you won't regret it!
