We drove this road twice and the first time it was foggy and raining the whole way up and the expected break through the clouds never happened. I made for an interesting drive, however the lack of visibility did make me pay attention to the...More

First thing make sure to leave yourself plenty of time. Our gps said we were 45 minutes from the park, not knowing we had another 30 minutes to drive inside the park. Sunrise was amazing. BE SURE to buy your self a parking pass. They...More

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!

Amazing drive but not for the fainthearted, hairpin bends spectacular views, sheer drops, steep inclines. As you drive up eventually you will probably end up in the clouds, but when they clear the views take your breath away. There is a tourist information stop about...More

This was an amazing ride above the clouds. The day my son and I drove up,, it was so clear you could see the big island from the top. And so much to see on the way up. Worth the trip

Not to miss this stop if you are in Maui! Beautiful view of the crater and the road is not that difficult to maneuver. At the top of the crater on a cloudy day, you feel like you are on top of the cloud. A...More

This Highway has a lot more to offer than watching the famous Maui sunrise or sunset. With many lookout views and short hikes, its no wonder it is part of the Haleakala National Park. If you drive it in the morning, it is cooler for...More

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 took about two hours to do the drive to the top where the viewing point is. Actually, it is a good highway with plenty of railings for safety. We stopped on the way down for lunch.
