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.
Upper Skyline Trail Access Closed During Construction
The park road and summit area above the 9740 foot elevation Haleakalā Visitor Center will be fully closed to vehicles, pedestrians, horses, and bicyclists through Thursday, July 25th. During construction, visitors will be directed to lower elevation overlooks, all of which have amazing views of the crater. This closure includes access to and egress from the upper Skyline trailhead, located near the summit of Haleakalā. Access to the lower Skyline trailhead, via Waipoli Road in Kula, is still open and is the only way visitors will be able to enter or exit the Skyline Trail.
Accessibility improvement work in the summit area of Haleakalā is 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.
