"End Of Chain Of Craters Road Big Island, HI" Volcanoes National Park Tip by syrin
Volcanoes National Park, Hawaii (Big Island): 65 reviews and 115 photos
This was neat to descend into and the drive to get here is 23 miles which is not that far but alot of the road is windy so it takes longer then you would expect. Once you get to the bottom all of a sudden the road stops because it has been covered several times with lava flow that erupted from Kilauea. You will see people walking all over the lava however there is a good chance that you coud fall threw. Another thing to watch for is which way the wind is blowing. Fumes from this area could pose certain hazards to your health but there is a little shack that has current information. Still anything can change at any moment. There are no gas stations on your way down but when you get to the end there is a little snack place were you can get something, at least it was when we were there. Weather here is unpredectible as you will see from the photos that some are really cloudy and some have blue sky. It can also be windy here too.
Another thing to see on your way to the end is the hardened lava that cames over the hills and mountain side. It is really neat to see the free shrubs, gras and vegetation then see these black hardened lava rivers on top.
Address: Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
Directions: From the Volcano House, follow signs for the Chain of Craters road and drive down towards the sea where the lava flows across the road will hamper further travel.
