This is one of the most difficult, but most pleasing trails on the island. You need to be able to climb and the weather should be dry in order to endure this trail. The view is nice as well as the whole trip.

Sections of this trail made me feel like I was traveling through middle earth. There are a few neat ponds that you walk by, as well as these large hills made of blank volcanic rock that you weave between. In between these hills you sort...More
