Devastation Trail to Puu Puai Overlook is a 1 mile out and back trail located near Hawaii National Park, HI that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, and nature trips and is accessible year-round.
This trail is part of a series of trails around the park. This one provided different views of terrain, sometimes rocky, sometimes lush. Kids can do this one very easily. By following this trail, you can go down in to the crater and walk along the floor. We only went a little way along the floor before we turned around (it was raining), but we had a great time. Bring water and good hiking shoes.
The stark beauty is amazing. Don't expect anything lush. But it is beautiful and peaceful.
A very easy boardwalk over a volcanic cinder eruption of the 1950's. Surreal landscape!
