Halemau'u Haleakala Overlook Trail ist ein 12.2 Kilometer langer, wenig besuchter Hin- und Rückweg in der Nähe von Kula, Maui, Hawaii. Er führt vorbei an herrlichen Aussichtspunkten und es gibt oftmals Wildtiere zu sehen. Aufgrund der Steigung und Distanz ist die Strecke als schwierig einzustufen. Hier kann hervorragend gewandert und gejoggt werden. Die Route ist das ganze Jahr über zugänglich.

Entfernung: 12.2 km Höhenunterschied: 724 m Routentyp: Hin & zurück

Good sunrise trail. Although it is an out and back, it feels like a new hike on the way back. No bugs. a little windy. If you take this, it is worth it to go further south to the cinder cones. The "unmaintainted trail" is okay too.

Trail eating of hard is accurate. Rocky and steady staircase incline coming back out. I only did a little less than 1 miles in and back to parking lot. Beautiful view of coastline and crater before I turned around.

Lots of loose rocks and bees! View is breathtaking, of course, but speaking of breath, make sure your lungs are adjusted to the 8000' altitude. I live near Crater Road so it wasn't a huge change for my lungs, but I did see other tourists struggling. $25 for entrance into Haleakalā National Park, but is good for 3 days with receipt! Since it's all downhill to the crater then uphill to come back, going as early as you can in the morning is better so it isn't too hot on the way up. Get that booty workout.

Clouds are hit or miss. If you miss, there isn’t much to see.

1.1 mile hike on rocky path to a crater view point. 2.2 round trip. We encountered the crater fogged in so no spectacular views.

We made about half way to the crater floor and still really enjoyed this hike. Sun protection and sufficient water is strongly advised. The view are remarkable!

My party was able to do the trail in both sneakers and hiking shoes, but hiking shoes would probably be preferable for if it rains. We did not heed the advice of a previous reviewer and did not bring a rain jacket, and it would have come in handy. We went on it a sunny day, so we didn’t get too cold until it started misting. The trail back up is not too steep, but can be a little challenging in some spots. We did out to the full trail because we left too late in the day. The Ranger said to expect about five hours for this trail. The views were wonderful, as well as the vegetation! There are steep drop offs in some spots, but as long as you are careful you should be fine. There are only one or two spots where you cross on a ridge line and it is steep on either side. 5/5 from everyone in my party!

Great diversity of scenery when combining the sliding sands and Halemau'u trails. Parked at Halemau'u trailhead and hitched easily up to summit, then went mostly downhill save for last 3 miles or so coming up Halemau'u.

Great trail. Well defined. Scenery is very nice. We went in and out of the cloud which was awesome. We did this right after doing the sliding sands trail which I highly recommend doing if you have time (took just over 5 hours for both trails).

My wife and I started at 7am on Sliding Sands trail and turned left onto this one at the bottom of the crater. Either park at the end of the trail and hitchhike up or park at the top and get a ride back up to your vehicle at the end of the hike. Either way you'll get a ride. 2.5 L of water was JUST enough for us to share...could have used more. With the descent from the start of Sliding Sands the total was 22km. The climb out of the crater was hard but not steep due to switchbacks and wife that wasn't impressed...I can't imagine someone riding a horse for this trail but there are signs. Highlight of the things we did in Maui...

This way down gives you many trail options once down. It's easy to follow, not very steap, it's all good. Probably easier than by sliding sands. Anyhow, made it all the way to paliku, which is a little more than 20 miles, but the terrain is so easy that it took only about 7-8hours Try to go on a not rainy day...

Getting to the overlook is pretty easy and doesn't take long. Very beautiful views along the way, almost like in a movie! Heading down can be tricky when wet, so be careful. I can't say what the climb up is like, since my wife and I went into the crater and up the Sliding Sands trail instead.

Amazing trail! I had 1.5 L of water and wish I brought more. Once you drop down to the lower level the clouds roll in and out all around you. It can get cool and hot based on cloud cover. I layered and it helped a lot. There is water at the Holua cabin but i think you need a passcode to get in. There was a couple staying there and offered to fill up my water pack. The nene birds hung out around the cabin and really cool to know they were part of the geese family.
