About Haleakala National Park:
This Maui Attraction is massive. It encompasses 33,265 acres, and a whopping 19,270 acres of that is pure wilderness. If you’re looking for a place to enjoy the wild then Haleakala National Park is a must visit.
It is possible to enjoy a casual visit to this Attraction in Maui – but even for that you must plan carefully. There is no food, gas, or other services available at Haleakala National Park, so you must bring the things you may need. One way to enjoy the Park’s beauty is by taking part in a ranger-guided hike or tour. The schedule for these hikes is available on the Park’s website.
For many, a ranger-guided hike isn’t the way to go. Many want to venture out and explore the far reaches of this Maui wilderness. Some choose a wilderness hike that lasts a few hours while others opt for a more intense overnight experience.
Hiking to the summit of Haleakala is a popular Activity at this Maui Attraction. The summit reaches more than 10,000 feet into the sky. The gorgeous volcanic landscape and scenery that is totally untouched by human development make a visit here a touching and memorable experience.
As you hike through this Attraction in Maui, you may encounter rare birds and other creatures; some of which cannot be found anywhere else. If you spend the night in the park then you will be treated to another amazing sight: the stars. No, it won’t be the first time you’ve seen stars, but the high elevation allows stars to be visible in such numbers that you might feel like it is the first time you’re seeing them.
Whether you stay for a few hours or a few days, a visit to this Maui Attraction is a wonderful addition to any stay in Maui.
