Haleakala Crater: Silversword plants

Where is the best place to see them up there? Simply by the parking lot... or a specific trail like the Sliding Sands Trail.

If a trail... how deep into it?

We have seen them right next to the parking up at the summit. No hiking necessary.

They have been planted at the visitor center and at the Red hill lookout area so all can see. Wild ones are scattered all over, even the side of the road.

There are lots of them planted all over the top by the parking lots and also at the visitor centre. It would be impossible to miss them.
