The summit District of Haleakalā National Park has reopened to the public after a two day closure due to unsafe road conditions and power outages.

Park officials say the Headquarters Visitor Center (7,000 feet), Haleakalā Visitor Center (9,740 feet), and Haleakalā Summit (10,023 feet) are all open.

The National Park Service advises visitors to expect reduced services due to continuing power outages in the Summit District.

The National Weather Service weather forecast for February 12 calls for scattered rain showers and cold temperatures. Temperatures at the Summit District commonly range between 30 to 65 degrees Fahrenheit and can reach below freezing at any time with the wind-chill factor. Hypothermia is a risk of anyone choosing to hike on park trails. Hikers must be properly prepared for high altitudes and cold, rainy conditions.
