Email:
Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park, established in 1916, displays the results of 70 million years of volcanism, migration, and evolution -- processes that thrust a bare land from the sea and clothed it with complex and unique ecosystems and a distinct human culture. The park encompasses diverse environments that range from sea level to the summit of the earth's most massive volcano, Mauna Loa at 13,677 feet. Kilauea, the world's most active volcano, offers scientists insights on the birth of the Hawaiian Islands and visitors views of dramatic volcanic landscapes. <P>Over half of the park is designated wilderness and provides unusual hiking and camping opportunities. In recognition of its outstanding natural values, Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park has been honored as an International Biosphere Reserve and a World Heritage Site. <P> <P>

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
April 8 Bring comfy shoes by Paul Brian
This is one of the neatest places that I have every been, but bring comfortable shoes as there is much to see and do, The day we went lava was flowing but it was a 8 mile hike to see it, sadly we were not prepared. Check with the rangers when you arrive they are a wealth of information.
