A great contrast to the other island environments. Looks like a moonscape atop of a lush mountain. It's a bit of a drive, but less time than the road to Hana for contrast. Well worth the trip.

We have seen the sunrise in the past and opted out of the mayhem this time. An interesting national park with an amazing history. Definately worth a visit. Bring warm clothes!

We drove up to watch the sunrise at Haleakala Crater and arrived to the summit around 4:00am. It is VERY windy and we were setup with chairs, blankets and had worn sweaters, hoodies and scarves. I think many people underestimate how cold it actually is,...More

We loved the adventure of going to see the sunrise. Regrettably it was too cloudy. If you go make sure you take gloves, hats, blankets and hot coffee. We will try again next trip.

Do a google search for pictures of Haleakala sunrises and sunsets and I am pretty sure the sunrise wins by a long shot. Be aware that in addition to reserving a spot (at least 2 weeks in advance) there is also a good... More

It is good road all the way. I have driven it many times over the last 20 years in both daylight and nighttime. It is a long road but just take your time. Full two lanes all the way up.
