Reservations allow access to the Summit District of the park from 3:00am to 7:00am. Please visit https://www.nps.gov/hale/planyourvisit/conditions.html for more information. Starting from the visitors center, you walk around the base of the cone, then up the side through a rocky path that overlooks the Haleakala Valley. The view from the top is surreal. Highly recommend this as a short and good reward for your effort.

The trail is basically a winding staircase up to a great view of Haleakala. Fantastic view. Worth all the stars

Great short hike from back of the parking lot near the visitor center. Awesome views. I was the only one up there at the time so it was very peaceful.

Very easy trail, but altitude can make you feel winded more quickly than normal! These views are breathtaking!

I guess if you drove all the way up there, you might as well do that. The view is very similar than the summit. I'd say you should also probably go down there through sliding sands!

Awesome views of the area, a must to take the short hike up for all sides panoramic. Plan for the altitude change by hydrating as this short hike could tax you if elevation causes any issues.

This is a short, but worthwhile hike to a viewpoint above Haleakala from the summit vistor's center.
