Tips from locals
Reservation is required for viewing the sunrise. Please leave early in the morning, they won’t let you in when the park is full. Hiking trails with amazing view!
Car Camping is available at the Summit of Haleakala. Several visitors sleep in their vehicles to make the Sunrise or Sunset viewings. If you stay at the crater, you will be locked in when the gates close. They will open up in the morning at the posted times.
Drive to the top of a 10,000 foot high volcano. Hike trails and see unique plants and animals
Early morning sunrise is spectacular. Dress in layers as it can be cold and then warm.
This trip is approximately 40 miles where the road rises from sea level to over 10,000 feet. Morning is a good time to go as there is more likely not any clouds - before going up to Haleakala call for a weather report. The best view of the crater is at the Visitor Center. This is an excellent trip…
