Hilo -- Pu'u'ō'ō Trail (Ka'ūmana Trail)
Daniel K. Inouye Highway
Where the trail crosses the stony 'a'ā lava, the larger stones have been moved to each side so the trail forms a trough. Today's remaining trail section is approximately six miles in length.
During the nineteenth century, trail use shifted from native Hawaiians bird catchers, kia manu, who worked on the eastern slopes of Maunakea to hunters and cowboys.
