Day Hike - Devastation Trail
Stroll on a paved path through a starkly beautiful recovering landscape that was buried by falling cinder from the spectacular lava fountains of the 1959 Kīlauea Iki eruption.
Witness life returning to this once devastated area.
Of interest: Native plants and birds, cinder and cinder cones, Pele's hair and tears, lava molds.
The nearest restrooms are located at the Thurston Lave Tube (Nāhuku).
Endangered nēnē (Hawaiian geese) frequent this area. Please use caution when parking. Don't feed the nēnē.
