Altitude Profile (6,621 ft to 9,793 ft)
Start at the Visitor's Centre and finish at the Haleman'u Trail Head (Switchback Trail). You need two cars or a similar means of getting between the start and finish points.
Descend from the Visitor's Centre car park on the Shifting Sands trail. Continue to the Kapalaoa Cabin trail junction and head back in a NW direction; the trail is somewhat poorly defined for this next section to Kawilinau hole-in-the-ground. Go via the Holua Cabin to the Haleman'u ascent to the car park.
Trails are generally very well defined. They allow for a moderate pace. Not good in the wet. Expect cold with significant wind chill. It was 11 deg C on a sunny day when we started the hike but that was the coldest it got. The majority of the hike I was in Shorts and T shirt.
