Kaʻū Desert Trailhead

Event Details

This monthly program on second Sundays is aimed at bringing together the members of the Friends of Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park to explore the park’s beautiful trails.

Join us on a geological hike to explore features from Footprints Trail in the Ka‘u Desert. The 2-mile round trip hike begins at the Footprints trailhead, where we will examine textural details of an ʻa‘ā lava flow. Once we descend to the sandy desert, we’ll view footprints fossilized in the muddy ash by Keoua’s fallen army in 1790.

This event is presented by the Friends of Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Program cost is $5.00 for Friends members. Non-members are welcome to join the Friends in order to attend. And, of course, additional donations are always accepted. Park entrance fees apply.
