Other worldly! Depending on the weather, be prepared to smell and taste a lot of sulfur in the air. People with asthma and respiratory issues should be aware of that potential. Incredibly powerful landscape, teeming with an amazing range of life and destruction. Unforgettable.
Great place. Hiked around for the day and it was amazing Much to see.
Stayed till the sun went down, when it gets dark you can see the glow from a volcanic crater. Its amazing.
Was in this area when it was super active in 2007. The park is wonderful and there is nothing else like it!
Amazing place. Started by the steam vents and made our way a little past the observation post at the summit and then back down. One of my favorite places to go on the big island.
Hiked this in 2004 to the active lava flow at night. Was truly amazing but a little scary. Don't think I would go out that far again. We went out past the trail markers. You are allowed to do this as you could never get lost but also cautioned against it because of unstable land. The lava tube underground are what scared me. You can feel the heat above ground and on the return hike the cracks in the earth were glowing. Even if you don't go out that far it is a thought provoking hike, watching land at the moment of creation.
I really enjoyed this hike.. Nothing hard but bring your camelback for water.
Seems like the whole island is an active volcano.
There are are more trails to hike in this park than anywhere else on the island combined. Put your hiking boots on, sunblock, take plenty of water, snacks and a camera... start exploring!
Amazing views. Spent plenty of time up there training in the military. Lava rock lava rock lava rock. Based out of Pohakaloa Training area and would often head out on foot up the hills.
