Great trail, pretty easy compared to the next section to Mauna Loa. The trail is closer to 7 miles each way making it a 14 round trip. I didn't come back but instead slept there overnight to acclimate for the 13+ mile hike the next day to Mauna Loa cabin. Great route, great trails. BRING LOTS OF WATER AND A FILTER.
