One of the highlights of our visit to the national park. We visited with the intention of going on a long hike and the wind was so awful at the summit that we couldn’t do it SO we stopped by this little loop trail on our drive out. Happy we did! A wonderful short little jaunt thru a gorgeous forest full of quiet, nothing but trees and birds chirping and nice signage describing birds and trees in the area. There are two viewing spots with big metal fixed binoculars to look thru and check out the birds (or whatever). Super easy stroll and nice setting.

Park and jaunt.

You can eat lunch at the picnic tables and then go for a walk in the grove. The fragrances from the trees are fantastic - eucalyptus, peppermint, etc. It was really beautiful!

On a drippy day on Haleakala, this trail was the highlight of the park, especially after the horizontal sleet at the summit and the cloud obscured overlooks. We had the place to ourselves and had time to marvel at the enormous trees spiraling towards the sky. The fragrances of this forest were fantastic as were the sounds - unfamiliar birds, wind, and quiet. This was an easy walk.

Beautiful trail. I would rate this trail "Easy" vs "Moderate." Many different types of trees and plant-life to see. The smells are wonderful! If this trail wasn't located right after the $25 toll booth, I would go daily for a quick after work hike.

Small, easy, but beautiful trail in upcountry Maui. You can smell the different eucalyptus trees (including a peppermint eucalyptus tree!).

The Trail is really just a small loop. You can't get really far into the woods without carving your own trail. The main purpose of hosmer's grove is camping, which there is plenty all the time.
