Haleakala is one of Maui’s most popular visitor experiences with magnificent views of the island (s) and incredible breathtaking sunrises and sunsets.
Haleakala is the largest dormant volcano in the world at over 10,000 feet elevation with an awesome 7 mile long crater…big enough to hold the entire island of Manhattan.
Driving time is about 2 hours from Kahului. Give yourself extra time on busy days. Traffic and parking can take extra precious minutes before sunrise.
Remember to take a jacket with you. For weather conditions and sunrise (5:45am in summer and approx 7:00am in winter) and sunset times, call 808 877-5111.
Hiking consists of 36 miles of hiking trails with campsites and cabins. Call at least 90 days ahead for a cabin reservation and necessary permits.
Haleakala National Park Headquarters is at 7,000 elevation with an information desk, maps, etc.
Haleakala Visitor Center is at the top (almost).
