Things To Do In Hawaii Volcanoes Park

See the Lava Flow

If you're here when Kilauea is actively erupting, one of the best things to do in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is to watch the lava flows.

Hike the Kīlauea Iki Trail

This fun hike is a must do! On this hike, you get to walk across a solidified lava lake on the floor of the Kīlauea Iki crater.

Thurston Lava Tube (Nahuku)

Lava tubes form when a lava flow forms a roof and walls, a hard crust that cools around the still-flowing lava.

Crater Rim Drive

Crater Rim Drive once circled around Kīlauea Crater. In 2018 eruption, part of the road was damaged, along with the Jaggar Museum.

Devastation Trail

This paved, mostly flat road passes through an almost barren landscape. Located next to the Kilauea Iki crater, ash from the 1959 eruption buried the area.

Chain of Craters Road

Chain of Craters Road is 18.8 miles long. When it was constructed, it was 9 miles long.

Hike out to the Pu’uloa Petroglyphs

This sacred site contains over 23,000 petroglyph images that have been carved out on the hardened lava.

See the Holei Sea Arch

The Holei Sea Arch is a 550 year old arch located on the coastline. It is located at the end of Chain of Craters Road.

Guanella Pass Scenic Byway

For most visitors, seeing the sights around Kīlauea is enough to keep you busy for a solid day. But for those with more time, you can also visit Mauna Loa.

Visit the Kahuku Unit

The Kahuku Unit is a separate area of Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park. Located to the west of Kīlauea Caldera.
