Halema'uma'u Steam Bluff and Sulfur Banks Reviews

We walked this trail while we waited for some misty/foggy conditions to clear. There are some steam vents with fences around them right at the parking lot, then a few more pits along the trail where steam permeates the ground. The Sulphur Banks stretch is mostly on a boardwalk, similar to Yellowstone, with plenty of signage to explain the formation of the area. We crossed over the road near the visitor center and returned via the Crater Rim Trail which has some steep drops and more steam rising from the bluffs below. Easy walking trail, very flat, and the crowds didn’t seem to venture very far from the first lookout point.
