Next, you will come across the visitor center, built on the flow of the 8,271 foot high volcano. The Mamalahoa Trail comes next, which is a completely straight and uneventful trail. This was an old mule highway. After half a mile of walk through the heat you should turn off at the Mamalahoa, into the Ala Nui Kaloko trail.
Soon after this, you will reach a stone enclosure that was probably used by ancient Hawaiians to produce some crop. Next in the trail, you will come across the Kaloko Fishpond, from where you will pass the Ala Huehue Trail, to reach another fishpond - the Aimakapa Fishpond.
The trail then runs along a low seawall to reach the Honokohau Beach and then Alopio Fishtrap and finally another Heiau - the Puuoina Heiau, from where you can walk back to the parking lot.
