Description

A number of roughly north-south connector trails criss-cross the crater floor to link the Halemau'u Trail to the Sliding Sands Trail. These connectors pass between the numerous cinder cones that litter the basin here. Any number of loops can be created by using these connector trails in combination to create routes of various lengths. Connector D begins around mile 7.2 of the Halemau'u Trail and travels south over level ground and among cinder cones before terminating at a junction with Connector C.

Heed the warnings and be prepared for cold and unpredictable weather. Also, be aware that the high altitude will cause dehydration and fatigue much faster than at sea-level. As of this writing, no food is available for purchase inside the park, so bring your own.

Didn't hike this but drove to top of mountain and walked around a lot along the way and stopped at some visitor centers and for picnic lunch.
