    Backpacking in Hawaii's Haleakala National Park - is it hammockable?

    I'm going down to Hawaii next February and will be doing a quick overnight trip in Haleakala National Park. I'll be staying at Palikū campground and can't tell if there's enough trees to make hammocking possible. Has anyone been out there? If so, what did you think of the trees and their potential for hammocks?

    Thank you!

    Ive heard off and been to Paliku cabin, I dont remember a Paliku campground. But either way there are plenty of decent trees to hand from in that area. Not so much at the top of the summit though, its all rocks. I dont travel any where in Hawaii without my hammock and tree straps. There are always good spots to hang.

    Thanks for the information! As I understand it, the campground is at the same place as the cabin. I'm not sure if there are official campsites or not, but I do know you can stay there. I'm a bit nervous about taking my hammock and being unable to find anywhere to hang, especially since I know it gets quite cold at night down there.

    If you plan to hang by the cabin you will be fine. There are plenty of trees to hang from. If I remember correctly the temps at night range from 30-50F. So if you have a uq and tq you will be fine.
