Officials at Haleakalā National Park are reporting very heavy traffic for sunrise viewing at the summit during the holidays.

Park rangers advise that visitors should be aware that they will encounter long lines at the park entrance station, and also advise that there is limited parking at the summit itself.

The park’s three-day entrance pass is $15. Park officials say credit cards are the quickest to process and visitors are advised to use them.

Minimum driving times to the park entrance from the following locations are: Wailea: 2.5 hours. Lahaina: 3 hours. Kahului: 2 hours. Visitor should also keep in mind that the summit is an additional 40 minute drive past the park entrance. The driving times take into account the heavy sunrise traffic and steep, winding road.

“The park is beautiful at any time of day so visitors may want to consider a later morning or afternoon visit. Sunsets are also stunning. Above all, please travel to and enjoy the park safely,” park officials said.
