Cycling Down Mount Haleakala
Maui, Hawaii

Cycling down Mount Haleakala, from the summit to sea level is a popular activity on Maui but it should not be attempted by inexperienced or infrequent cyclists. Note that the National Parks Service no longer allows downhill cycling tours to begin inside Haleakala National Park, but the last I heard tour operators were still allowed to conduct tours that begin outside the park.
