Hike into both sides of Haleakala; each environment is very different from the other, so both should be experienced to gain a true appreciation for this natural phenomenon. Take a two-mile hike at the 10,000-foot summit where huge cinder cones dominate the desert-like, expansive scenery. And another two-mile hike at 8,000 ft. on a lava trail lined with rare native plant species. Views stretch for miles in all directions everywhere you go on this tour. We also include a nutritious lunch and trail snacks included too.
