12/5/21 Road Closure

Gina S. '21 | December 2021
12/05/21 9:00AM: Road is washed out at Pahihi Gulch after the natural sea arch. We had to turn around to start the regular loop tour after we learned this - would recommend not doing the reverse tour at this time to maximize sight seeing.

Edward Gregg | December 2021
Absolutely love the tour guide history. Very accurate about when and where to turn and the connection between Haleakala and Maui from Moana
