Haleakala National Park

Haleakala, a massive dormant shield volcano, forms more than 75 percent of Maui's landmass. As such, it pretty much demands you ascend it to peer down into the crater—and down into the island's very soul. The 60-kilometer (37-mile), two-hour drive climbs from sea level to 3,055 meters (10,023 feet) and through as many ecological zones as a spin from Mexico to Canada.
