This trail is wheelchair accessible from the Steam Vents to the Sulphur Banks.

Description

Due to geothermal heat, this exciting volcanic thermal area has very few trees. The Sulphur Banks Trail (also known as the Ha'akulamanu Trail), this unusual place, with steaming cracks and colorful mineral deposits, has been famous for birds and healing vapors.

This is an easily accessible trail that originates at the Kileau Visitor Center near the Volcano Art Center Gallery. If used as an out-and-back, expect a roughly 1.5-mile round trip. You can also access the trail from Crater Rim Dr.

Due to sulfur fumes, pregnant women and young children, as well as people with heart or respiratory concerns should consider skipping this trail. It is important to stay the trail and beware of steam and cracks.

Flora & Fauna

This trail is known for birding. Apart from that, its geologic features overshadow any biologic features.
