The Epic Bike Tour In Hawaii That Must Be On Your Island Bucket List

Just 27 square miles short of equaling the entire size of Oahu, Mount Haleakala is a gentle giant — a dormant volcano that has inspired those who make the journey to its summit for centuries. The mountain comprises 75 percent of Maui Island and is home to desert-like conditions, rainforests, and everything in between. While visiting Mount Haleakala for sunrise is a no-brainer and hiking through the national park is absolutely incredible, there is a reason this mountain bike adventure has been rated as Maui’s No. 1 “must do” adventure by Hawaii Magazine readers.
