This is a nice, relaxing, short hike. Great for families with young kids who want to show them something about the volcano. There are lights inside, and railings and steps to help with the inclines/declines. We even managed a stroller. The inside of the lava tube is neat, with some old lava on the sides left from when it was active. It is also nice and cool, which helps after walking through the heat and humidity. This is highly recommended.
