This 1.2 mile (1.9km) loop trail reveals a story of struggle and survival for some of the rarest plants and animals in Hawaiʻi.
The walk will take you through a "kīpuka", an area of older vegetation surrounded by a more recent lava flow from Mauna Loa.
Restrooms (pit toilets) are available nearby at the picnic area.
