It's a long and winding drive up to the crater, but we'll worth it. Beautiful scenic overlooks along the way and several bathroom stops. There is no place to buy food in the park but signs were posted letting you know at the visitor center. Don't miss it!

It's best to get to the park early and make your way to the the top of Haleakala on a clear day! The views are spectacular and we love to hike down into the crater a couple miles. Hiking down is pretty easy. Climbing back up is a little more strenuous. We take our time and get amazing pictures. It's... More

The park is every bit as good as the crater with several exceptional hikes. If you don't like the physical activity there are quite a few lookout points to enjoy. Be sure to stop at the visitor center just after you enter the park. Bonus for us it was President's Day so entry was free!

Ok, I'm only doing 3 stars here because we missed the sunset due to weather. Hence the title. We did this the morning after our wedding for a symbolic sunrise to start our new lives together and while the sun did rise, the clouds and rain blocked the view from the summit. We probably would have gone anyway, but I... More

We drove to the Summit Observatory on a very clear sunny day. It was 46 F and very windy, so it was difficult to walk with the high wind and uncomfortable to walk around much due to cold. We stopped at both of the lower elevation observation points, and found the views of the whole crater to be much better... More

The tour company picked us up about 2:15am. Then drove about 1 1/2 hours to the base of Haleakala, then another 22 miles up the mountain to the viewing area. Elevation is 10,000 ft. We arrived at 4:30am and then waiting in the viewing area for the sun to rise at 5:45am. It was a truley beautiful sunrise. Then went... More

A must see...most scenic at Sunrise and Sunset...but worth the trip any time of day...be sure to pack food and drink and have a full tank of gas, as none are available in the park...bring along a heavy coat of sweater as it will be cold on top...feeling really adventurous, hike down into the crater and your have the feeling...

We have done this trip a few times. You have to reserve your tickets in advance for $1.50. They only allow about 150 cars up there. The park charges $20 a car to get in, however you can use your ticket for 3 days at the seven sacred pools stop on the road to hana. Wear warm clothes and if... More

Haleakala National Park is a great trip to take when you want to get out of the sun for a bit. The caldera is full of beautiful colours. If you like to hike, there is a hiking path through it, but I don't know much about it so you'd have to do more research. At the top of Haleakala, you... More
