This Easy Trail In Hawaii Leads To The Summit Of A Volcanic Cinder Cone

The Hawaiian Islands are not only home to magnificent beaches, but world-class hiking as well. And with near-perfect summer weather year-round, there’s nowhere better to lace up your hiking boots and hit the trails than our beautiful islands. And while we love coastal trails and waterfall hikes as much as the next person, today, we’re heading off the beaten path to a little-known trail that’s unlike any other you’ll find in the Aloha State. Ready for the adventure of a lifetime? Lace up those hiking boots, because we’re headed to Mauna Ulu.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

The Pu’u Huluhulu Trailhead is located at the intersection of Saddle Road and the Mauna Kea Access Road on Hawaii Island. For more information, head on over to AllTrails or visit the National Park Service website.
