Explore cinder cones and old lava flows from within Haleakala, possibly the largest dormant volcano on the planet. Formed by erosion rather than volcanic activity, the valley at the summit of Haleakala boasts much to marvel at and the packed cinder and soil underfoot makes for a relatively easy hike. Here you'll find the silversword, an endangered plant found nowhere else on Earth with an alien appearance that compounds the other-worldly appearance of this remote location. Ascending and looping up the mountain, the road to Haleakala National Park is equally spectacular, climbing through the clouds to the summit. Watch out for tour groups of cyclists on this road who freewheel down the mountain. These popular tours begin in the early hours of the morning so they can witness the sunrise over the island from the summit before they begin their two-wheeled kamikaze return back down the volcano.

Wonderfull!

Super!

Great hike with beautiful views!

You can go further than just the 2 miles each way the app says. We went about 4 miles each way but you can go even further if you wish.
It is downhill all the way out, so the return journey is obviously harder!

If you made it to watch the sunrise then make sure you take off the extra layers you were wearing because the sun will warm you up and it's warmer at the lower elevation.

This is a great trail! At the moment the end is closed so you can't get close up to the final falls. The scenery is breathtaking and the guavas on the trail are an added bonus. This is not a difficult trail at all.

Easy trail. Pools are nice.

Awesome and beautiful hike!! Highly recommend it.

Great warm-up for the falls hike--though go early--as with everything in Hawaii--it gets very crowded.

Easy trail--but the pools are great!

Awesome hike! Two great waterfalls in one day--plus the pools are incredible!

Great trail with a huge amount of diversity. Saw multiple great water falls and a really cool bamboo forest!

The View of the falls and the polls are beautiful. It looks just like the postcard and that's as close as you're going to get. You need to realize the US park service has closed pools to the public so you can only look, no touching the water. They do not allow you access to the pools any longer, so you may as well save the $20 entry fee and go to the beach and read about it.

Amazing! Come prepared - hiking sticks a must! Rain poncho a must!!! Solid shoes a must!!! Bring water snacks. Not for kids. It will rain no more like pour - flash floods will happen. Very slippery did I say slippery! Muddy and wet. It's magically seems too good to be true. Go early in the day. It's worth the drive - amazing!!! Bucket list item.

Awesome and worth the drive! Fun to swim in the pools and watch people jumps off rocks. Wear water sandals or shoes. Bring a hat in case it rains...Careful of slippery rocks!

Kind of hard to get to, but okay hike.

Great trail. You need the right shoes. It was very misty.
