My wife and I drove up for sunrise. We got a spot on the lotto, but be aware tickets seem to sell out in minutes when released 2 days prior at 7am. Temperatures in early October were about 40 degrees F at the summit. Even...More

Definitely plan and make reservations for sunrise or sunset if you want one of those sights. But go mid-late morning if you want to avoid traffic and cyclists. Take your binoculars and camera, and stop at all the turn outs to soak up the views...More

Driving to the top of Haleakala was a wonderful experience. It's great for the whole family. The crater is really big and majestic looking with lots of nice photo ops. Pretty amazing to think it once spewed lava and created Maui! Make sure you check...More

we came from Kaanapali beach and it took us about 3hrs. to make it to the top (with a gas stop in Kahului). Initially the weather was pleasant, the scenery beautiful and happy cows were wandering around. After Kula the road became rather curvy and...More

On a clear day you can see the whole island and over to the Big Island. On a cloudy day you can enjoy the feeling of touching the clouds. It is a high elevation so you may experience some effects if you ever suffer from...More

What a unforgettable experience. We select the sunset once that is much easier to get a space on the top of Haleakala. Take your time to reach the top, to stop the car (it was difficult) and get your winter clothes on. We were with...More

If you’re scared of heights, don’t drive up to the crater. While there are wonderful views for the passengers it’s not that much fun for the driver. We made it up to the 8,000 ft lookout and then headed back down. Also be cautious as...More

Arrived around 4;30 and was able to secure a spot at the very top. Since it was so cold we took turns getting out of the wind. The entire day hiking and sight seeing here was terrific
