Description

Descend through a dense rainforest to the floor of the solidified, however still steaming, Klauea Iki Crater lava lake. Peer into the 1959 vent that erupted to a height of 1900 feet located below the Puu Puai cinder cone.

Stops along this trail reveal the story of a dramatic eruption in 1959. A well-marked path leads you through lush rain forest along the rim of Klauea Iki (little Klauea) and down to its still-steaming crater floor.

Hiked Crater Rim Trail to the Kilauea Iki Trail. Great hike that descends into the Kilauea Iki Crater, and then climbs back to the Rim. Bring water. 4.4mi
