AAA Editor Notes
The Silversword Loop, accessed by a 4.7-mi. hike from the park road on the Halemau‘u Trail in Haleakalā National Park, encircles an area covered with unique ‘āhinahina (silverswords). The spheres of silvery dagger-shaped leaves are endemic to higher elevations on Haleakalā Volcano. When in full bloom during summer, they can attain a height of 6 feet. Silverswords also can be seen near the Park Headquarters Visitor Center and at the summit.

Allow 6-8 hours for the 9.4-mile round-trip hike. Free trail maps are available at all visitor centers.
