Halemaumau-Byron Ledge Semiloop Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This trip adds the beauty of the forest on Byron Ledge to the fascination of the Halemaumau Trail. From the west end of the parking lot in front of Kilauea Visitor Center (left end as you face the center), carefully cross Crater Rim Road and pick up a paved path marked only by the “hiking trail” symbol and a sign pointing you to Volcano House.

You pass a steam vent and, at a marked junction, take the right fork toward Halemaumau and the observatory (this is part of the Crater Rim Trail). You descend and reach another junction. Here, you turn left onto the Halemaumau Trail (and away from the Crater Rim Trail)."
