Hilo Off The Beaten Path: 15 reviews and 28 photos
At the Lava tree State Park you will experience the destruction that can be caused by lava flow.
This ohia forest was engulfed with lava during the 1790 destruction.
Moisture from the trees caused the rock to harden around the tree trunks.
All that was left was a hollow shell of lava rock.
There is a one-hour nature loop walkway that takes you through the park.
It makes for an interesting stop.
The park is open daily year around. Entrance is free.
n front of the park the beautiful stretch of road is called the tree tunnel because of the arched monkey pod trees that arch overhead.
At night when you pass by there is a loud choir of tree frogs.
