Pololu Valley Awini Trail

Drive to the lookout at the end of Highway 270, then park your car and look for the brown sign that leads to the trail. The picturesque dirt and root path can be steep in places, but the views are worth the effort. The lava-rimmed black sand of Pololu Valley Beach are a great place to rest, but the conditions are not suitable for swimming.
