“a rare and sacred landscape”

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. This special place vibrates with stories of ancient and modern Hawaiian culture and protects the bond between the land and its people. The park also cares for endangered species, some of which exist nowhere else. Come visit this special place - renew your spirit amid stark volcanic landscapes and sub-tropical rain forest with an unforgettable hike through the backcountry. Your visit to Haleakalā National Park might include a glimpse of a rare native bird, a hands-on experience with Hawaiian culture, breezes through the bamboo forest, or warm sun on your back as you hike a volcanic landscape. First you have to choose the experience you are seeking and where to discover it. Do you want to explore the summit? The coast? Do you have time to experience both? Perhaps you can spend a few days and plan an overnight adventure. Whatever you choose, be prepared. The Summit and Kīpahulu Districts are remote. An ambulance can take up to 45 minutes to arrive at either district. People with respiratory or other medical conditions should be aware that the summit of Haleakalā is at 10,023 ft. There is no food, beverages, or gasoline in the park.

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!
