Haleakalā National Park officials say there is a temporary road closure in the park due to winter weather conditions.
The Haleakalā Highway temporary closure begins at Kalahaku Overlook (9,324 feet) and extends up to the summit of Haleakalā. The Haleakalā Visitor Center (at 9,740 feet) is currently closed. Once conditions improve, Haleakalā Highway and Haleakalā Visitor Center will reopen.
Visitors are advised to use caution on driving on roadways as conditions can quickly change. Visitors with sunrise reservations are advised to check the park website and the National Weather Service for conditions prior to coming to the park as unexpected weather-related closures may occur.
The Park Headquarters Visitor Center (7,000 feet) and the Kīpahulu Visitor Center in the Kīpahulu District remain open. For more information on Haleakalā National Park click here.
