A: Enjoy a variety of hiking trails in Haleakala National Park. Ranging from short, easy walks of 10 minutes or less to multi-day overnight backcountry trips, there's something for everyone. The Summit Area has more than 30 miles of rugged trails and is the most strenuous, with steep inclines, higher elevations and more variable weather conditions. For those seeking a more relaxed experience, the Kipahulu Area offers 3 miles of easy trails that meander along the lush tropical coastline. Wherever you hike, be prepared for rapidly changing weather conditions, bring adequate sun protection and enough food & water for your excursion.
