“Also called Ha'akulamanu, this trail meanders through a volcanic wonderland.”— Brian Smith
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.
