Lava Tree State Monument

Highway 132

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. (17.1 acres)

My family and myself had a peaceful walk through this area. The paved path makes it accessible for all. Hopefully the area and residents will be okay.

Peaceful place to take in the natural scenery, nice paved walk away with a few covered shelters to rest, got out of the rain or have a picnic. Full service bathrooms in the parking lot. Great place to visit, don't miss the big crack In The ground(Fisher I believe)by the end of the trail, I couldn see the bottom. Highly recommended.

Interesting place to visit near Pahoa on Big Island. Takes about 30 minutes to see whole park. Good place for photography.

A hidden gem and a must see when exploring. You could spend an hour or 20 minutes here. The walking loop was very easy.

Very cool park with paved walkways throughout making it easily wheelchair and stroller accessible. About 0.7 miles all the way around in the middle of a beautiful forest. Two shelters along the way in case it rains. Seeing these trees is a very cool experience. Shouldn't take more than 30 minutes to see the whole park so makes an excellent stop if you're in the area. Bathrooms are available and parking is free.
