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.

Even in the rain it was spectacular

Short trail to the lookout. Weather was not on our side today but still enjoyed the leg stretch and the glimpse of what was to come.

Magnifique! A ne manquer sous aucun prétexte.
Facile d’un point de vue technique, mais difficile par la longueur.

Best trail we have done on so far on two different islands.

Fun trail even in the mud. Be warned it is a busy trail. The views were great, the forest unique and something I will never forget!

We loved this hike. It isn’t too hard. It does start out hot but soon you are in shade. The bamboo forest is so beautiful! The first falls are ok, but you are quite a distance from it. The second fall is bigger and you see it a little closer, but it’s too dangerous to get very close.

Pretty neat, but muddy and packed full of tourists

Did this hike the other day and loved it! The Bamboo forest was so pretty and unique. I found this hike to be easy but keep in mind it is muddy and can be slippery. The second waterfall was so beautiful. The stream was flooded so we couldn't cross but your still close enough to get a good view. We had to make it a quick hike cause the sun was going down and the forest can get dark quickly. Great way to end the road to Hanna.
