We also went to the top of the following: Pu'upua'i, Mauna Ulu, Puu Huluhulu, Pu'uwaiau, Puu Hau Kea, Mauna Kea, Puu Kea, Pu'uhau'oki, Puu Poliahu, Puu Kalepeamoa, Kilohana, Mauna Loa.

Spent a week or so camping in the park and poking around most of the corners. Lava lake was right up at the surface so made some great night time viewing.

We hiked the Iki trail. We also saw the lava glow after dark. This is a really unique National Park.

JHH60broke the rules  Sucess!


Hiked to the lava flow with my girlfriend (now wife). Despite the advice of the ominous sign (and, I admit, my better judgement) we wore Tevas, shorts, carried only a quart of water each, and only brought a single light, although several hours of hiking was after nightfall (and some after midnight). We survived.

...great experience. It was awesome to see such a geologically active area. Walked around the crater rim and took plenty of photos. Pretty cool place.

Did the 4 mile kilauea iki trail which brings you down into a dead crater and across the floor. Very different terrain. We also did some other short hikes and went through a lava tube. The crater rim drive was closed while we were there due to sulfur gas.

Many hikes through the park. Simply amazing. Must hike to the active vent next time. We watched the fire glow into the ocean. Beautiful

Fun to see all the volcanic activity going on in Volcano National. Saw a school of children with their teachers doing a ceremony to Pele. Was pretty special to witness this cultural tradition.

Hiked with Kelly (USA). I never saw lava flowing that close.

Love Hawaii and its volcanoes!

mlandau3Another Rainy Day


Visited this after being snowed off Mauna Loa. At least we got to hike through a lava tube. Couldn't see anything else due to the fog and cloud.

I've been there twice (once in '02 and once in '03.) We did tons of hiking all around the park. It was pretty awesome.

Had a great time here at Volcanoes National Park. Kilauea is awesome! Part of the park is still closed due to the eruption of the Halema'uma'a crater within Kilaeua Caldera. Also, the lava that flows into the ocean has moved towards the city of Kalapana and it's no longer on national park property. That was a bummer since the county wouldn't let us any closer than half a mile. It was an awesome time. I stayed in a cottage at the Kilauea Military Camp. Not too shabby and located right in the park.

Wow. I spent many days here, doing A LOT of things. Some parts of the park were closed, due to an active vent in the Halema'uma'a crater, but still I saw and did so much stuff here. I stayed in Volcano Village, so it was very convenient. You'll never forget your time here.

Spent all night out there. On the way back got caught in a sideways rain shower. As the sun was rising a perfect end to end rainbow appeared. The Big Island rocks! Also now hooked on Royal Kona Honey Macadamia Nut coffee.
