Haleakala Summit and Hana in two days -- best route?

Jump to last reply

Hello, we will make our first trip to Maui this summer. We are staying 6 nights in west Maui with one night in the middle (double booked) in Hana. Can we leave West Maui, do The Haleakala Summit at sunrise then proceed to Hana from there?

Also, once we leave Haleakala, can we take the backside to Hana and stop to do the Pipiwai Trail and Oheo gulch, then spend the night in Hana, while the next morning continue the road to Hana backwards toward Paia? I want to make frequent stops without being rushed.

Is this advisable? I also thought maybe we could proceed to Hana first, then the following day do the summit at sunset, but I'm afraid I'll regret never knowing if the sunrise is really that spectacular.

How bad is the drive on the backside? I've read very different opinions, rental car contract issues, etc, but I really want to see as much as possible, however I do want to come out alive :).

Thank you in advance.
