Maui Pictures - Bike Haleakala
Maui Pictures - Bike Haleakala - The journey to the summit of Haleakala National Park brings you from coastal Maui to the remote summit, 10,023 feet above sea level. The crater (technically a cinder cone) is 3,000 feet deep, 7.5 miles long and 2.5 miles wide with a total circumference of 21 miles. On Maui's highest peak you find an island in the sky where the clouds spread out below you like a second layer of ocean. Smaller cinder cones, rare plants, native birds, and hiking trails await your discovery.
Park entrance admission: Vehicles, $10; Hikers and bikers, $5
The drive to the summit from Kahului takes approximately 2 hours.
Bring a warm jacket or sweater as temperatures at dawn are cold.
