While at Hawaii Volcano National Park, hike out to Pu"u Huluhulu. Please visit the website below and also the National Park Headquarters before you hike. The trailhead starts at a paved parking lot. The trail takes you through a high desert, with volcanic formations, ohia trees and views of the surrounding Kilauea volcano area. In the distance to the east, you will see the Pu'u Volcano vent smoking. The Napau Crater Trail continues from the Pu'u Huluhulu trail. At the end and top of Pu'u Huluhulu you will see deep inside an old volcano vent, lined today with vegetation, mostly ohia trees and it's beautiful flower - lehua. It's a fairly easy hike. Wear a hat and good shoes, bring water, rain gear if needed and of course your camera. You may see nene - Hawaii's State bird. Do not approach the nene, be respectful of this precious environment.
