    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!

    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.

    The park is beautiful and it is a great place to go camping. As a kid, I loved coming up here for hiking around, and I'm sure other kids would too. It was a family favorite of ours.
