PC: Tracy Glen McGuire

Due to approximately 1.5 inches of snow, covered by a heavy layer of ice, the road to the summit of Haleakala has been CLOSED at Kalahaku Overlook, which is at approximately 9000 feet of elevation.

Visitors will not be allowed to access the summit or the snow due to these extremely hazardous road conditions; visitors will be turned around at Kalahaku Overlook.

Visitors will be allowed to view the crater from Kalahaku, but should keep in mind that there are only 12 parking spots at Kalahaku; their cars may be turned around if the lot is full.

The park road and all park facilities above 9000 feet are closed until conditions are safer. Facilities below 9000 feet are open, including Headquarters Visitor Center, lower-elevation trails, and restrooms.

Updates available on the visitor info closure line, 808-572-4400 option 2
