and other trails. From the Halemaumau fire pit, the trail crosses
caldera floor eastward and then climbs to the Byron Ledge trail.
On the Byron Ledge trail, you have views of both Kilauea and Kilauea
Iki and pass through the rainforest and by mounds. Many of
the plants along this trail are marked for educational purposes and
stairs are provided for an easier assent/decent.
