"Look for Lava" Volcanoes National Park Tip by jag17

  Lava Flow
by jag17

The most popular and incredible place to visit in Hawaii. The Volcanoes National Park was established in 1916. Over 333,000 acres housing the world's most active volcano. Mauna Loa Volcano stands at 13,677'. A full day is necessary, and that will barely crack the surface of this enormous place. Hiking, camping, backpacking and even exploring by car are all available options. If you are lucky, you might even see the volcano erupt while you are visiting.

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.
