Every time we go to the Big Island we go to this park and spend at least 1 or 2 days there. There is so much to see and experience. I was able to hike to the dormant side of the volcano just 3 years ago which was amazing!. There is so much to see and experience.

Off the beaten path off the Chain of Craters Road there is a short 3/4 mile easy hike to numerous petroglyphs. Be sure to pack water and wear a hat if it's sunny. There is no shade and heat radiates off the rocks but the ocean is within view of the trail and there is usually a nice breeze.

This park is hard to get your bearings and there's no real center to it. That said, amazing volcano history and information. When we went was rainy so impeded views considerably

Greetings Adventurers:
When I arrived to Isla Grande, the first thing I wanted to do was visit the Volcanoes National Park and its main attraction, the great Kilawea. When you reach the entrance to the National Park, the first thing you notice is that the ground is arid and covered with hardened lava. After a long walk we arrived near the coast where the Kilawea vomited lava in the sea and raised a column of smoke, steam and sulfur. The imposing nature of this arid landscape made me reflect on how beautiful and destructive mother nature can be. Highly recommended.
