  • This was some of the best hiking I've done in Maui. Instead of the high incline, typical hikes around the island, these ones are rolling and gradual, although still moderate enough for the seasoned hi...  more »
  • Be prepared for the road on the island that will make you sick. Even of you dont get sick, it will make you sick. Then after driving the switchback you end up at the end of the road where you need a 4...  more »
  • If you thought the switchbacks at Haleakala were bad, brace yourself! This is 11 miles of constant S-turns. I started getting car sick. We had read about what a great hike this was and really wanted t...  more »

  • Don't even try to get there without a 4-wheel drive vehicle. We paid to reserved a campsite online, but the road up the mountain turned to dirt/mud and quickly became impassable without getting stuck. We were never informed that a 4-wheel drive vehicle was required to pass through the 4 mile mountain road to reach the campsites. We were forced to turn back for fear of getting stuck, and we lost our $$ for the camping reservation. Be advised!
  • I'd rather live one day on Poli Poli than a lifetime in Kahului
  • Pretty cool place once you get there. It takes a 4 Wheel drive or at least a vehicle with high Clearance. The road gets pretty bumpy and is just dirt. However to hike in the cloud ring if Haleakala is worth it. A few different hikes start from the park and there is a ranger station you can rent out also.
  • I wish I had more photos, and planned this one better. I hiked the border trail one way, and hitched a ride back. The trees were almost as large as the California Red Woods. Would like to go back, and explore the other trails.
  • Its so cool you will love it xxx☺☺☺☺😊😊😊😊😊
