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.
For those who need an overnight escape without a backpack trip, the park offers two car accessible campgrounds: Kīpahulu and Hosmer Grove. Kīpahulu campground is near sea level on the wet, east-side of the island in the Kīpahulu area of the park, which is reached via the Hāna Highway. Hosmer Grove is on the way to the summit, high on the windy slopes of Haleakalā.
