Amazing views. When your on the rim of the crater, you are so high up people appear as ants that are inside of the crater. Climbing back up was a bit of a challenge only because I was not use to such a humid environment. Very rewarding hike. Active steam vents within the crater were amazing.

My first foray into hiking in Hawai'i. It had poured the day before, so it was quite muddy, but that did nothing to diminish the experience. I prefer the minimal approach; I normally do 8-10 miles without water, but I chose to bring a small pack with a change of clothes and water. It was the correct decision.

Wow! Torn, don't want to blab too much so this trail gets a bunch of attention but loved it so much I want to mention it... if you're clever there's cliff jumping at one set of falls and rope swinging at the other. Inspect the rope first and watch out for the big submerged rock.

I'm thinking of doing this hike the morning of the 25th (this Saturday) let me know if your interested in tagging along. 253-495-2484

I'm using this site as a plan of attack:

It's similar to the incline we did in Colorado but this wasn't a high elevation compared to Colorado of course but beautiful views

Kinda boring, not much to see, not really hiking more like walking, really hot no shade.

I liked the trail and would do it again. It is closer to moderate than the easy rating on the AllTrails app. (I am mid 50s) 1000' elevation gain and some steep uneven parts of the trail. The loop trail consists of three different trails. I took a picture of the map where the trail splits.

A very hard trail but worth the effort. Breathtaking views and a real sense of accomplishment when you finish. A must for all serious hikers.

Bring snacks, plenty of water and walking sticks!
