“Volcano anyone?”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

After the big island I had an idea of what it would be..it was different. We approached from the west side past the lavender gardens of course ..in the rain. Visibility was tough...cold up there,
Call ahead!

“Very nice drive and view”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

We took the drive on a nice sunny day and it was very pleasant. This is a must see attraction if you are on Maui. There were some clouds at the top (a common occurrence) but did not spoil the views very much.

“Seven Sacred Pools”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

Included on a Road To Hana Tour we were on was a stop at the Halekala National Park's Welcome Center & a visit to the Seven Sacred Pools. It is a magnificant area with so much history & tradition. How incredible!

“Cold but pretty!”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

We awoke early and drove to see the sunrise. We took family who had never been there. They have a phone number to call about the weather but it was not accurate. We did not have a good view this time. The other times we came we had really great sunrises. It was again extremely cold. We brought very warm clothes long pants and blankets and I brought gloves. The tourist center is interesting and less crowded after the sunrise.

“Sunrise worth the early start and cold”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

Best to visit on the first day in Hawaii before your internal clock adjusts to the Hawaiian time zone. If you don't want to hike up to the summit, make sure to get there early as the parking lot at the summit will be full for the sunrise. Also bring lots of warm clothing and a blanket as it is extremely cold and windy at sunrise. For people looking to do more than just seeing the sunrise, there are great hiking trails into the crater or join a biking tour down the volcano.

The $10 per vehicle fee is valid for 3 days and can be used if doing the Road to Hana while visiting Ohe'o Gulch and the Seven Sacred Pools.
Highly recommend the GyPSy Maui apps for a simple to use GPS audio tour for Haleakala (and also the Road to Hana).
