The nearest major airport is Honolulu International Airport. The main airport is in Kahului, in central Maui. Major airlines fly from the U.S. mainland and inter-island flights are common between the main Hawaiian islands.
Haleakala National Park extends from the 10,023 foot summit of Haleakala and down the southeast flank of the mountain to the Kipahulu coast near Hana on the Island of Maui. These two sections of the Park are not directly connected by road, but both can be reached from Kahului.
The Summit area of Haleakala is a three hour round trip drive from Kahului via State roads 37, 377 and 378. Follow the signs posted along the Highway.
The Kipahulu area of the Park is at the east end of Maui between Hana and Kaupa. It can be reached via Highway 36, a curvy, often wet road. Kipahulu is about 90 miles from the resort areas of Wailea or Kaanapali, and 60 miles from central Maui. Driving time is about 3 to 4 hours each way. An extension of this road, Highway 31, goes around the dry side of the island, past Kaupa and on to Ulapalakua. It is only partially paved and can be hazardous or closed during periods of stormy weather.
Access the Summit Area by State roads 37, 377 and 378; Kipahulu by highway 36. There is no public transportation on Maui.
Once at the park, you can travel by personal or rental vehicle, bicycle, tour bus, van or taxi (arrangements not made by Park).
