MtnGal, Walter,
Thanks for your kind comments.
There is a modern asphalt Highway that closely follows this pathway at times and it is sometimes referred to as Mamalahoa to honor this original trail.
Walter the Hawaiians traversed these pathways thru the open lava fields at times barefooted but did use coverings for their feet made from local fibrous plants which provided a degree of protection.
