Tour around Kilauea Crater: Stop 6

In November 1959 there were some spectacular eruptions from the Kilauea Iki Crater. Ash from fire fountains over 600 m high was blown by the trade winds over the adjacent rain forest, causing a desolate landscape. The National Park Service has called this area "Devastation Trail" which offers a walk along a board walk that lets the visitor see how the vegetation is recovering from the eruption.
