Cowboys In Hawaii: Upcountry

As you make your way up the west side of Haleakala, you'll find yourself in the open lands of Upcountry.

This charming assortment of small towns, ranches, and farms offer phenomenal local goods that make ideal gifts and souvenirs. Bring your appetite and get ready to taste fresh fruit, vegetables, coffee, and wine. Make sure you stop and smell the lavender, eucalyptus, and hibiscus along the way. And since you're on the side of Haleakala, you might as well catch the panoramic views of the entire West Maui Mountain Range.
