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.
Headquarters Visitor Center Parking Lot Closed for Accessibility Improvements
The Headquarters Visitor Center passenger car parking lot, at the 7000 foot elevation in Haleakalā National Park, will close for accessibility improvements starting at 7:30am on Monday, July 29, through Tuesday, August 13. Vehicles remaining in the lot after 7:30am Monday will be ticketed and towed. The restrooms, visitor center, and bus parking will remain open. During heavy traffic, signs at the park entrance station will direct passenger cars to alternative short term parking, restrooms, and an information tent, along the narrow Hosmer Grove Road. Back country camping and cabin permits and general information will be available at this tent.
Accessibility improvements in the summit area of Haleakalā are scheduled through September 2013. The work is occurring during summer because asphalt must be poured and set during the warmest, driest time of year. Visitors and residents should expect continued heavy construction traffic on Haleakalā Highway and Crater Road. For the latest updates please check www.nps.gov/hale or call 572-4400.
