See The Very Best Of Upcountry Maui In One Day On This Epic Road Trip
The Valley Isle is a place of uninterrupted natural beauty, and nowhere is that more true than upcountry Maui, on the slopes of Mount Haleakala. While it is easy to say that this area of Maui, comprised of Makawao, Pukalani, Kula, and Ulapalakua, is known for its magic landscapes and stunning vistas, there are some killer attractions to check out while you’re there. And this stellar road trip, which measures in at only 75 miles and three hours of drive time, takes you to nine of the best spots you’ll find in upcountry Maui. Without further ado, let’s start this ethereal journey.
If you’re looking for less drive time, consider visiting Mount Haleakala another day, as the drive to the summit alone adds at least an hour of drive time to your trip.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
