Take A Drive Above The Clouds On This Incredible 38-Mile Highway In Hawaii

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 we love writing about Hawaii’s third tallest mountain peak — including their infamous sunrises — we’ve never talked about the incredible journey to reach the summit along Haleakala Highway.

Have you ever visited the summit of Mount Haleakala? Tell us, do you prefer driving or being a passenger as you make your way up the mountainside? I’ve done both, and I definitely prefer not driving so I can admire the views and snap some photographs.
