We visited early October 2009. I have never seen other lava flows, but I'm sure this one pales in comparison. In other words, you might be disappointed if you've seen the big ones. But being our first time, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit and were very glad we decided to stop by. The paved walkway provided an enjoyable stroll and there were information plaques along the way about the lava and the wildlife in the area. You are allowed to leave the walkway and venture onto the flows. It made me a little nervous with the thin shelves and deep cracks, but it was fun. (Until we ran into a tarantula, then we were back on the path!). We walked extremely slow and even lingered for a long time, but I think we only spent about 1.5 hours. It is a fee area, but worth it if you've never seen a lava flow before.
