This is mostly moderate, even though rated hard. It’s a bit rocky, so perhaps that’s part of the hard rating? That can be hard on your ankles. Just be careful. Wear layers, as it can get cold and windy. Bring water and food. It is spiritual as you are hiking the crater, which is one of the energy vortexes of the planet. This is a great hike for connecting with Source.

Absolutely breathtaking. Amazing way to get back up to the rim if you start with the Sliding Sands trail.

Beautiful but long and hot. Switchbacks are tough

the best hike I have ever been on. surprisingly I had cell reception the entire hike. but there isn't a spot for a break once you start making your way down.

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.
