You start the trail from your right as you face the crater. The trail head is situated at about 400 feet above the crater floor. The first half of the trail takes through a rainforest at the border of the crater till it comes at the first overlook. Pass two other overlooks before you come at a junction with a Byron Ridge trail connector from where you have to take left to reach the fourth overlook. Now the trail starts descending into the crater till you reach the Puu Puai, a hillside rising out of the crater on the right.
The trail leaves the lip of Puu Puai and passes two terraces on the solid surface of the lava lake. From the twin terraces, the trail makes a half mile beeline across the crater floor. The trail ascends through the lava lake's subsidence terrace or the bathtub ring before it climbs up the side of the crater. The final phase of the trail makes you climb up 400 foot through the rainforest back up to the crater border. Kilauea Iki trail again starts from the north end of the lava tube, an artery of the volcano and after half mile you will go back to your starting point.
