Haleakala

Haleakala

More than 75% of Maui was formed by Haleakala, a shield volcano located on the southeast side of the island. Puu Ulaula, or Red Hill, is more than 10,000 feet tall, making it the volcano’s tallest peak. Go hiking in the 30,000-acre Haleakala National Park and experience various landscapes, from tropical forests to unique desert terrain.

National Historical Park, Kalaupapa, HI

It's quiet as you ride on your mule along the 2.9-mile trail to Kalaupapa Peninsula. You'd be speechless too if you were descending from 1700 feet with steep drops and the Pacific before you. Three miles 26 switchbacks and 90 minutes of magnificent views later and you're back to sea level in the historic town of Kalaupapa.
