This is a easy out and back trail to Puʻu Huluhulu in Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park.
Experience a lava landscape from the 1969-1974 Maunaulu flow. Walk by lava tree molds and climb 210 feet (64m) to the top of a forested cinder cone, Pu‘uhuluhulu (hairy hill). On a clear day you can see Mauna Loa, Mauna Kea and the Pacific Ocean.
Bring water, food, hat, sun protection and rain gear.
Safety: Hiking on flow fields can be hazardous due to deep earth cracks, uneven and unstable terrain, and razor-sharp lava.
Trail Begins: Approximately 100 yards (91.4m) from the Maunaulu parking area. Ahu (stacked rocks) mark the trail across the lava flows. Please do not disturb them or build new ones. Stay on the trail.
