Great trail. You need the right shoes. It was very misty.
a good use of this trail is as the ascent portion of a hike starting from sliding sands trail. park at the halemauu trailhead, use the hiker pickup spot to hitch a ride to the sliding sands trailhead, then hike down into the crater and return to your car via halemauu trail. it's not quite a loop trail, but it's close enough when done this way.
