“Incredible coast walk with scenery and history galore.”— Nick Wilder
Just after the start, pass by ruins of ancient Hawaiian structures. Trails have been in use for hundreds of years here - imagine running on these with bare feet! Pass the structures, plus some neat arches and a small blowhole in the lava right next to the sea.
You'll have a short break through a forested section, but the rest of the run traverses crushed lava. It's not nearly as rough as some other lava trails, but watch your footing. If you venture off trail for a better look, be extremely careful - everything is razor sharp and tends to shift underfoot.
Enjoy magnificent views the entire way and retrace your steps when you've had enough.
