  • 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 »
  • This is such a surprise in Maui! We wanted a day out of the sun and we love to hike. We read about this place and it sounded amazing. It was! First, realize that from the main road turnoff. It is 10 L...  more »
  • Like many roads in Maui, the paved one up to this Rec area is narrow and winding. At a few points my husband considered turning around (no signage) and turnaround points were few or filled with paragl...  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.
  • Its so cool you will love it xxx☺☺☺☺😊😊😊😊😊
  • 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.
