Abuari-Kaile Trail (Track) - Abuari

The Abuari-Kaile Trail was a Japanese track as a parallel route to the Kokoda Trail during the Second World War. The track starts at Kaile, proceeds southwards along Hagutawa, Misima, Asigari (with a spur to Isurava) and Abuari. Then turns to the west to the southwest to Alolo (Alola) where it joins the Kokoda Trail.

The Japanese soldiers established a base with emplaced machine guns at Abuari by 26 August 1942.
