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.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

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.
