Daniel K. Inouye Highway

Hilo — Pu'u'ō'ō trail was built atop the 1855 lava flow and was used to travel by horse of foot to Pu'u'ō'ō Ranch and Humu'ula. It approximates the route of earlier prehistoric trails. Much of the trail traverses smooth pāhoehoe lava and is marked by rock cairns.
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.
