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 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.
There is no public transportation on Maui that will bring you into or near either district of Haleakalā National Park.
Most visitors arrive by car, some by bicycle, and a few by foot. Others choose to visit the park on an authorized commercial tour and arrive by motorcoach or minibus.
