This trail leads one mile through an old-growth forest, which is surrounded by recent lava flows.

Kipuka Puaulu Trail is a short loop through an upland forest oasis surrounded by lava flows from Mauna Loa. This forest is an old-growth forest of koa and ohia trees. The trail is rated as easy by the Park Service, but the surface of the trail is dirt, so it is not wheelchair accessible.

Directions: From Park Entrance, Pass the park entrance on Highway 11 and continue driving to Mauna Loa Road. Turn right on Mauna Loa Road and look for the trailhead on the right side of the road.

Distance: 1 miles

Difficulty: Easy
