AAA Editor Notes

Leleiwi Overlook is 6 mi. above the Park Headquarters Visitor Center in Haleakalā National Park and can be reached after a short walk from the Leleiwi parking lot. At an elevation of 8,840 feet, the overlook offers an almost surreal view of the valley. In late afternoon it is possible on rare occasions to see “The Specter of the Brôcken,” a phenomenon in which a person’s shadow is projected onto the heavy cloud layer in the valley; the image is encircled by a rainbow. It is named for Mt. Brôcken in Germany, where the phenomenon also occurs.
Included in 3-day park pass of $15 (per private vehicle); $10 (per motorcyclist); $8 (per pedestrian or bicyclist). A Hawai‘i Tri-park Annual Pass (which also includes Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park and Pu‘uhonua o Hōnaunau National Historical Park) is $25.
Hours: Park open daily 24 hours, except during extreme weather conditions. Park Headquarters Visitor Center daily 8-3:45.
