Leleiwi Overlook

Viewpoint in Summit Area

For your first look into the crater, stop at Leleiwi Overlook (8840ft), midway between the Park Headquarters Visitor Center and the summit. The overlook also provides a unique angle on the ever-changing clouds floating in and out. You can literally watch the weather form at your feet. From the parking lot, it’s a five-minute walk across a gravel trail to the overlook.

En route you’ll get a fine view of the West Maui Mountains and the flat isthmus connecting the two sides of Maui.
