Pu’u Wa’awa’a cinder cone


7.5 mile (RT) hike with an 1,800 foot elevation gain to the summit of a cinder cone. It took us through a forest, along hillsides with grazing sheep, goats, and cattles, and eventually up to the soft grassy summit of the cinder cone, where there are breathtaking views of Mauna Loa, Mauna Kea, and Kohala.
