Day Hike - ‘Iliahi (Sandalwood) Trail
'Iliahi (Sandalwood) Trail
Find `Iliahi (sandalwood) growing among native and non-native trees along this beautiful rainforest trail. Feel the heat from the active steam vents and peer across the steaming floor of Kīlauea Caldera and the erupting Halema`uma`u Crater while enjoying the comforts of this mostly shady loop trail.
Of interest: Walking in a rain forest, listening to the singing native birds, steam vents, pit craters, fault scarps. Views of Kīlauea Caldera, Halema`uma`u Crater and Mauna Loa.
This trail combines the Halema‘uma‘u, Crater Rim and/or Sulphur Banks trails. Beware of cliffs, cracks and steam vents.
