Great hike and the weather was fantastic. We started early, 7:30am and definitely experienced a temp change throughout the hike so bring layers! Another good note worth mentioning is that the park itself doesn't open to hikers until 7am unless you've made a reservation to see the sunrise. If you plan to start out early, be sure you have a reservation or you will have to wait outside the park. There is also a $25 entry fee to get into the park.

We hiked down to the first cabin and hiked back up to the visitor center parking lot. We are both fit and it took us around 5 hours round trip. We stopped several times for pictures.

Be sure to wear sunscreen! We had SPF 50 on and reapplied once during the hike but still got burnt. Between two of us, we brought 3 liters and probably could have used a 4th. I'd recommend a minimum 2 liters per person.

Unfortunately this isn't too scenic but it's still very cool to hike into a dormant volcano!

The Hana Highway! This should be on everyone's short list of scenic drives. 64 total miles (approximately 52 from Kahului to Hana) through mostly lush tropical rainforest hugging the steep slopes of Maui's northeast shore. It is slow and winding with amazing views as you pass the 600+ curves and 59 bridges (most just one lane wide). I have done it twice...both times a number of years ago. But it is something you don't forget. Don't miss Waianapanapa State Park, its trails and wonderful black sand beach. But the highlight for me was swimming in the clear blue freshwater cave pools (just be prepared for the very cold water that has come down from Haleakala). Hana also has a red sand beach and the beautiful Hamoa Beach, where we boogie boarded in large waves. Great memories!
