"Great spot to see pre & post-lava destruction" Devastation Trail & Overlook Tip by CruisingGoddess
Devastation Trail & Overlook, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park: 4 reviews and 7 photos
We stopped at the Pu?u Pua?i Overlook & Devastation Trail. There was a picnic table here under shade so we decided to eat our packed lunches. The weather was perfect for a picnic and it turned out to be a really nice, relaxing lunch. Just past parking lot, there is an overlook of Kilauea Iki Crater. There is a path that leads to Devastation Trail, which shows results of 1959 eruption on environment and you can see the base of Pu?u Pua?i. The entire trail is 0.5 miles but we only walked down it for about 5 minutes and was able to see the contrast between the pre-eruption forest and then barren dirt.
