Haleakala tomorrow (July 7th) for sunrise

First time on the island. We have decided to do the sunrise at Haleakala. Does anyone have any tips on what time the sunrise is scheduled and what time we should leave Kihei. Thanks for your input.

Sunrise is 5:49, allow about 2 hours for the drive up and plan on arriving well before, 20 minutes or so, the actual sunrise. Dress warm and have fun.

I would nudge Mamma's numbers up a little. It's a busy time here, and the traffic may be heavier than you think-and slower. Plus, some of the very best colors are around 30-45 minutes before the actual sunrise here. As the sun creeps up, the clouds are vivid reds, pinks, blues, and purples.............it's def a magnificent sight. Our weather has been good-and some clouds will make for a better sunrise than none.

I would leave Kihei at 3AM at the latest, even 2:45.

Yes we went and it was spectacular. We left at 3am from Kihei and arrived at the summit at 4:30. Unfortunately we are back on the mainland now having to get back to reality. Thanks for your input.
