    Lori Kunz reviewed Kilauea Craters Trail

    2 days ago

    Loved this hike. I only hiked down from the Lava Tubes trail. It was voggy and late in the day. The descent through the rainforest onto the crater was surreal. We are heading to the big island again in January. I sure hope this trail opens up again. It appears to be closed.

    I did this trail last year. It was cool and the rangers definitely push people towards this trail. The one across the street is far cooler. Both are closed, apparently, due to recent volcano activity.

    We wanted to go all the way to Emerald, but became super lazy and stopped at Dream. We played on the rocks and at the use of a little water fall. The boys had fun trying t catch the fish 9with their bare hands, lol). Beautiful hike.

    Lori Kunz reviewed Gem Lake Trail

    I found this on geocaching.com about the geology of the area as I was pondering the formations.

    "Gem Lake is an example of a pothole pond, a pond residing in the depression formed by the weathering of the underlying bedrock into a shallow bowl shape. The bedrock is granite of the Longs Peak-St. Vrain Batholith, and is on the order of 1.4 billion years old. The weathering of this granite through exfoliation is responsible for the many domes in the Lumpy Ridge area.

    Gem Lake is exceptional for its size. Most potholes in the area are much smaller, with some being just a few feet across. Precipitation enters the pond through rain, snow, and direct runoff. There is no inlet or outlet stream."

    DOGS ARE NOT ALLOWED ON THIS TRAIL AT ALL. PERIOD.

    Great hike on a sunny Sunday afternoon. It took 3 hours and I rested at the lake for at least a half an hour. The last 15-20 minutes of the hike is wicked. Straight up but don't give up! It is worth it.

    The parking lot limits the amount of hikers so the trail wasn't too packed and I did have moments of quietude and awesome views.

    I'll do this one again.

    A great place to picnic, enjoy scenery, fish and spend a nice family day away from it all.

    More like a path going around the lake halfway than a "hike".

    Areas to set up camp for the night or so.
