“Descend 425' at the southern edge of Kīlauea Caldera (until the closure).”— Brian Smith
You may return by the same route or proceed to the Byron Ledge Trail. From there continue to the Klauea Iki Trail and on to Crater Rim Trail that will bring you back to Klauea Visitor Center.
Please note the Halemaumau Trail across the caldera floor is closed beyond stop 10 due to the active eruptive vent in Halemaumau Crater.
