Haleakala National Park is one of the best places to visit in Maui, Hawaii. It is one of only two national parks in Hawaii, the other being Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island.

Haleakala National Park is made up of two distinct districts: the Summit District and the Kipahulu District. There is no road that connects the two, so you have to visit each district separately. 

Watching the sunrise from the top of the Haleakala crater is a bucket-list Maui experience for many visitors. If you plan to drive up, you need a parking reservation. Or join a guided tour!

Not a morning person? Sunset at the summit of Haleakala is just as spectacular, and you can stay on and do some stargazing as well!

During the day, hike into the depths of the Haleakala Crater on the Sliding Sands Trail. It is one of the most epic hikes on the island of Maui!

The Kipahulu District of Haleakala National Park is accessed via the scenic Road to Hana. It looks completely different from the summit!

Hiking the Pipiwai Trail through a bamboo forest to Waimoku Falls is the most exciting thing to do in the Kipahulu District of the park.
