“This is the westernmost route linking the Halemau'u Trail and the Sliding Sands Trail”— Megan W
Connector A begins around mile 6.25 of the Halemau'u Trail and snakes between two prominent cinder cones before intersecting Connector B. Connector A then heads west, uphill through a saddle formed by two more cones. The terrain levels out over multicolored dirt and cinder before terminating at approximately mile 4.1 of the Sliding Sands Trail.
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.
