This short one way hike across the caldera is remarkable! Within a few yards we hiked through the desert (looked liked we were on another planet), then the rainforest, then the clear view across the calderas and volcanoes since there was no vog. An amazing, unusual time.

The Kilauea Ike Trail head was jammed so we continued down the road to Devastation Trail. You can take this trail and connect with Byron Ledge trail and then connect to Kilauea Iki and go down into the crater. The parking is less crowded, you get some nice views of Kilauea crater along the way and avoid much of the crowds. It was about 1.5 hours from parking to the Kilauea Iki crater...We took it and then lunched on side of the Iki crater then retraced our path through rain forest. We did not traverse the bottom of crated but could have.

Bring hiking shoes but the hike is moderate to easy and took us about an hour. Please keep in mind we are fast walkers who are fit but we passed people of all ages and fitness levels on this hike. We loved it!

We did this hike in mid-February 2020. Our kids built a 'Temple of Pele' near mile 13 in the crater. It's built like a stone 'well' (kind of a little round building). If anyone sees it during their hike it would be great if you could post a picture as the kids want to know if it's still up fueling their Pele Power! ;)

You can either walk this or drive it and walk from certain places. We decided to drive it and walk from certain sites to view the scenery which was interesting. Please be aware that other than steam vents the volcanoe is not active in the way that you expect to see from pictures etc.
