This is a deceptively easy hike along a beautiful yet rugged part of nature. Unfortunately, while walking along the trail between the Volcano House and the Steam Vent parking lot, the area 6 inches to the side of the packed dirt trail gave way when...More

Changes have made this park a disappointment from what it once was. The Jagger Museum is closed and that was the best spot for viewing the volcano at night, which now probably does not have the red glow with the changes from the eruption.

With the damage to the park, this is one of the few spots that one can look down into the crater. Good ranger led discussion at the crater edge (check the times on the NPS board at the Kilauea Visitor Center) that discusses a good...More
