“Beautiful Rainforest Stop”

Lava Tree State Park
Ranked #5 of 25 things to do in Pahoa
Attraction details
Reviewed March 14, 2013

This is a delightful gem of a park. The loop trail through the rainforest would be worthwhile even without the lava trees. Far from being disappointed at how "worn down" the lava trees are, we found them to be a beacon from the past and an eerie reminder of the power of "Pele". We had our lunch in one of the shelters on the trail and enjoyed the peace and quiet and the calming view. It's a totally delightful short stop.

The lava "trees" have somewhat worn down over the years I think, but this is a really nice walk. We still enjoyed it.

It's simply a nice park for a 30-minute stroll. Worth seeing if you're passing nearby, not really as a separate trip. It's greatest advantage is lack of people - we met maybe 3 people inside. Free.

A small attraction worth going to. Combine with going to see the lava. Never saw anything quite like that.

nice 20 minute self guided walk....easy to miss the park, as there are no signs until yo are right at the park.
