“a national park located on the island of Maui”
Haleakalā National Park is on the Hawaiian island of Maui. It’s home to the dormant Haleakalā Volcano and endangered Hawaiian geese. The Leleiwi and Kalahaku overlooks on the steep Crater Road have views across the West Maui Mountains. Rugged trails in the Summit District pass cinder cones and lava flows. In the coastal area of Kīpahulu are the Pools of Ohe’o, freshwater pools and waterfalls set amid bamboo forest.
The view from up here is just about impossible to beat. Its quite a long drive (especially if your staying on a different area of the island like I was). Also it is rather cold up here before the sunrises so bring blankets and all the warm clothes you can find. Basically you want to arrive right before sunrise and watch the orange and yellow colors of sunrise from above the clouds overlooking the islands and ocean. It will be a memory you won't forget!
