A short 0.6 mile, easy, double loop trail, constructed by the Youth Conservation Corps, encircles both crests of the hill. Trail provides an excellent opportunity to view native vegetation which was once abundant prior to the introduction of livestock and the lava flows of 1843 & 1935. The top of the Puu makes an excellent picnic site and provides panoramic views of the area. No open fires are allowed. The trail is short, easily traversed and ideal for youngsters on a day`s outing.
