    A little different and off the beaten path. Out in the Ka’u desert you notice the little things. the changing colour of the lava new ferns growing and a lot of variety. Hiking on pahoehoe sand and over ‘a’a. Views on maunaloa, Maunakea, fault lines up to Jagger museum and down to the coast towards Naalehu. Didn’t see a single person. Well marked trail.

    This hike was OK. 1.25 miles, no real shade. Had to speed hike and the payoff is Muana Ulu crater which we didn’t make it to. Pu’u Huluhulu was overgrown with vegetation making it difficult to see anything. Coming from volcanoes and lava flows from west coast mainland, was pretty disappointed with Volcano National Park. If no lava is flowing, it’s just a lot of remnants of flowing lava that you see all over the island. There are large, impressive craters and some steam vents. However, if you have more exciting things to do, do them over this. My teenagers couldn’t have cared less (typical around that age) and I felt a little more that way after visiting.

    A very easy loop starting at the park visitors center. Interesting things to look at and very good views into Kīlauea crater.
