There are much better views of Haleakala. I do not recommend it.

suggest to go at sunset. It was breathtaking. you're literally above the clouds. got crazy crowded the closer to sunset. definitely stay for stargazing. also, it is freakishly quiet up there. no, bird, bug, water, car, or plane noise. You only hear quiet chatter of visitors. Wear a sweater and pants. it gets super cold.

Hidden gem! A pleasant surprise in the end. Easy. A bit rocky. We made it with a toddler in the carrier.

There are literally no words to describe the views. To try would be an insult.

Short walk to an overlook. Cool view of the weather is on your side. We had high winds but it was worth it to get out of the car on the way up to the summit. Easy walk.

Short trail to the lookout. Weather was not on our side today but still enjoyed the leg stretch and the glimpse of what was to come.

While driving up it began to pour. Unfortunately we didn't have any views. Trail is extremely short and a bit boring. May try again when it's clear.

Make sure to walk around the bend for a view of the crater. Awesome!

After taking the Sliding Sands Trail and Crater trail to just above the crater floor, and trudging back up, we stopped at the Leleiwi Overlook driving down for an overview of what we hiked. This area is so surreal, especially when clouds and sunshine roll in. Great views for little effort - definitely worth a stop.

Very unique landscape unlike anything if ever seen. Short walk - thin air. Didn't see much as the clouds had settled in but on a clear day it's supposed to be breath taking. Worth the stop on the way down from the crater.
