This challenging loop trail takes you along ridgelines with views of the north and central parts of the national park and island. Hike up and down “ladders” or steps with ropes for balance. There are a total of 56 ladders and 783 steps. The trail leads to the Mount ‘Alava Summit, returning down another steep section of trail to Vatia Village, and loops back along the road to the trailhead.
