The Leleiwi Overlook Trail at Haleakala National Park on Maui, Hawaii is an easy 0.3 mile out-and-back hike out to one of the first crater overlooks in the park.

At the overlook you can see an old lava flow of dark rocks scattered across the crater floor, cinder cones, and the colorful green slopes of the northern side of the crater.

Views: When you first hit the trail, you get views of north Maui toward Haiku. The trail will eventually turn toward the crater overlook after 0.15 miles in.

Elevation: This trail sits at 8,800 feet, so take your time walking unless you've previously acclimated to the elevation.

Fees: There's a $25 entry fee for Haleakala National Park. The ticket you receive is good for 7-days (make sure to check the Haleakala National Park's site), but I highly encourage you to purchase the $50 annual pass if you plan to visit more national parks within the next 365 days.

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
