Time to Hike: ~9 minutes


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.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. 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 or poking around the site to view ads is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
