UPDATE: 02/2015 – The Lave Flows have dramatically changed. The directions posted on my site are no longer applicable. I will update as information changes (if it changes). Lava currently is NOT accessible.
In my opinion standing next to flowing lava is one of the most amazing nature experiences! If you are contemplating this for your vacation, I highly recommend taking the day or two needed. Even if you are a long time Hawaii resident, this is one of those hikes that if you are able, each person must do at least once.
Information online isn’t easy to find for this hike, so I endeavor here to create an easily laid out guide to help you. Broken up into four sections, it is meant to be read in order but you can jump to any page of information you need.

As always, I’ll try to answer any question you may have.
