The Kaupo Trail leads southward from Paliku Campground to the small town of Kaupo on the Maui coast. The trail is nine miles one way with a very rocky trail surface. It is recommended that hikers do not go alone due to the rough conditions. The first three and a half miles of the trail lie within the park and descend from the crater. The remainder of the trail follows a jeep trail. A brochure detailing this trail is available at locations within the park.
