Located on the island of Maui, Haleakalā National Park extends from the 10,023 foot (3055m) summit of Haleakalā down the southeast flank of the mountain to the Kīpahulu coast near Hāna. These two sections of the park are not directly connected by road, but both can be reached from Kahului.

Please note that there are no gas stations within the park. The last place to get gas in route to the Summit Area is in the town of Pukalani. If you are heading to the Kīpahulu Area, the last place to get gas along the Hāna Highway before Hāna is in the town of Pāʻia.

There is no public transportation available either to or in the park.
