Lava Trees Loop Trail
|Trail Length||0.7 mile loop|
|Park Name||Lava Tree State Monument|
Viewing of an excellent example of a forest of lava trees along an 0.7 mile loop trail. This unusual volcanic feature is the result of a lava flow that swept through this forested area and left behind lava molds of the tree trunks. Picnicking opportunities. The trail is roughly paved but has some uneven surfaces. This is an easy family walk.
The trailhead is located just off the parking lot. The paved route makes an easy to follow loop through these unique lava formations.
Off Pahoa-Pohoiki Road (Highway 132), 2.7 miles southeast of Pahoa.
- Mountain biking is not allowed on this trail.
- Stay on the trail.
- Pack out at least what you pack in.
- No open fires.
