This was one of the best stops, takes a while to get up there, but totally worth it! Trust that when you go through the clouds and rain, you'll likely come out the other side in sunshine. Bring a sweatshirt!

We took the highway for sunrise and it was beautiful coming back down. On the way up, the turns made people carsick. You get a few "butt pucker" moments on curves with big drop offs but the views are awesome and you can see out...More

We drove the Haleakala Highway all the way to the summit to see the sunset. We stopped along the way at both overlooks and both visitor centers within the park. The road itself is in very good condition and is well maintained. The road travels...More

I am from Switzerland and I am known high mountains. The most beautiful was for us the beautiful, curvy road up to the summit building and the beautiful, wide view on all sides. Sunrise or sunset could be very beautiful from here! The mountain landscape...More
