O`heo Stream and Pools Closed
The O`heo stream, located along the Pipiwai Trail, remains closed due to high water and damaged stream monitoring equipment. Visitors are advised to abide by posted “stream closed” signs and the direction of park staff.
For your safety
The Summit and Kīpahulu Districts are remote. An ambulance can take up to 45 minutes to arrive at either district from the nearest town. People with respiratory or other medical conditions should also be aware that the summit of Haleakalā is at 10,000 ft.
Drive cautiously - Endangered birds land on roadway
Nēnē (Hawaiian geese) are nesting in the park and may land on or frequent park roads and parking lots. Drivers are reminded to drive at the posted speed limits and exercise caution.
Doing Business With The Park
Commercial Use Authorization
The process of granting a CUA also ensures that the activity is necessary and appropriate in a National Park setting and specific to Haleakala. Thus certain commercial activities are prohibited such as ballooning, hang gliding, canyoneering, or food concessions.
Businesses operating inside the park without a CUA are subject to fines, mandatory court appearances, confiscation of equipment, and denial of future opportunities to operate in this or any other National Park.
Commercial Services Plan
Please Note: No new CUAs are being issued until completion of the CSP. Completion is expected in September 2012.
