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.

Non-caring government workers ruined my vacation. Crater region was closed due to alleged instability and earthquakes. We stayed in Volcano Village for four days and felt no tremors. Staff too lazy to update website daily, so once or twice a week they post on Facebook bragging about how wonderful the other side of the park is or offering hope there might be a public lava viewing area set up in the disaster zone. No way that was ever close to happening. I had to spend a $1,000 for a boat tour to see lava. Facebook said rangers would be at the village Art Centerr and Hilo Discovery center; but when? What hours? All the time? No way I can call NPS because everything location was closed. And good luck finding the Hilo Discovery center. The Hilo Info Center moved from a shoddy downtown to a sketchier bus stop that was closed at 4.15 pm on a Saturday. So OK, we drove over to the "open side" of the park and that visitor center was closed on noon! Then the next day or two they closed for tropical storm Hector. Ha! No winds. I was up on the Big Island mountain crater that night stargazing while the Volcanos NP staff was sheltering in place I guess.
