You should begin the hike at 10,000 feet and descend the edge of the crater to reach a desolate land. You will come across the green slopes of the Koolau Gap in the north. After crossing a mile you would find a small cape from where you can see the huge depression marked with cinder cones and lava pours.
After descending for sometime you would get closer to the floor, where you will notice the lava formations and naturally formed dried lava walls. At 1.85 miles you will reach the junction with the Ka Lu'uoka O'o spur trail. Then go back to the main trail and turn left as it parallels the lava flowing path. Descend down into the crater till you reach an unnamed trail junction. Pass it and you need to walk 1.9 miles to the Kapalaoa cabin. Move into a rainforest and turn east over Kaupo Gap and descend down to the Paliku cabin.
