Get Here

Most visitors arrive at the airport in Kahului and rent a car. From here, it’s 14 miles to Makawao. From Makawao, it’s 10 miles to Kula. From Kula, another nine miles to Ulupalakua. Though just 25 miles from Kula, the visitors center at Haleakala National Park takes an hour to reach on a winding road. Upcountry speed limits drop to 25 and 15 mph.
