This is a great 4 mile hike that takes you down the side of the mountain through lush vegetation then you walk out across the lava fields and finally end with a hike up the other side of the mountain. You can see the steam coming up in between the lava fields, it is really cool. When you exit the hike you can then walk across the street and go through the lava tunnel.
It does get extremely busy so I would recommend going earlier morning, espcially if you are like me and want peace and quite to enjoy nature and listen to the birds.
Take layers, it is cool walking in the vegetation then gets really warm on the lava fields. Take water as there is nothing available on the 4 mile loop. There are 2 enterances, you park at one then walk the loop and end up at the other enterance - not to worry walk along the street for less than 1/2 mile and you are back to your car!!
Enjoy your hike !!!
