Haleakala is a dormant volcano that last released its fury in 1790. Over 200 years later the land surrounding the lava flow is still barren.
The summit rises 10,023 feet above sea level with the crater 3,000 feet deep, 7.5 miles long and 2.5 miles wide.
The view from the summit is a spectacular one. Pu'u o Maui, the tallest cinder cone in the crater, is 500 feet tall from the crater's floor.
The drive through the upcountry Maui to Haleakala is one of the most dramatic trips of a lifetime.
Visitors can see Haleakala on foot, bicycle, horseback, or car.
There are numerous guided hikes and tours offered by the National Park Service and private activity companies. Visiting the crater at sunrise or sunset is an experience one won't soon forget.
Halfway to the summit, a bank of clouds usually forms. The summit usually rises above these clouds giving you a clear view of the crater floor.
