Haleakala Back Side
Haleakala’s Back Side – If you’ve taken the time to drive all the way to Hana, why not keep going! If you do, you will be rewarded with an amazing variety of scenery. You will pass through several different climate zones including the lush jungle of Kipahulu, ranchland, dry grasslands, lava-scapes and finally back into the lush green forests on the “front” of Haleakala.
The road surfaces you will be driving on vary from smooth asphalt to gravel roads and are safe to travel on with all types of vehicles during normal weather. This trip is definitely for the more adventurous, but well worth the effort.
