Hilo, Hawaii Volcano Hike
Skirt the edge of the caldera over one of the previous lava lakes and see the native ʻōhiʻa lehua trees slowly claiming the area as their own. Take your time coming up to Byron Ledge as you will be climbing roughly 400 ft of elevation in half a mile, but will also have sweeping views of the 1000 ft. pit that has been filling up with lava as Kilauea Volcano continues to erupt off and on. The beautiful photo opportunities along the way allow you to take a breather, along with a bench at the top of the climb with a bird’s eye view of the caldera floor you were just on.
The rest of the trail leading over to Waldron Overlook is a more gradual incline through the forest with sneak peaks of Pu’u Pua’i and Kilauea Iki. End the hike along old crater rim drive, which is now slowly being consumed by vegetation and end back at Volcano House where you can sit and enjoy the view some more. The adventure doesn’t stop there! After a short break, your guide will take you to some of the other amazing locations Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park has to offer, including the lava flow of Mauna Ulu where you’ll look for Pele’s tears and lava trees. You’ll also see the older Nahuku lava tube hidden in the rainforest. For all your hard work, you’ll end with a filling dinner at one of the locals’ favorite restaurants in Volcano Village, just outside the National Park. “Lava glow viewing if weather and lava conditions permit”
