Lava Tree State Park, Pahoa

3.5
#4 of 11 in Things to do in Pahoa
Discover some of nature's most exceptional shapes and creations at Lava Tree State Park. The absolute highlights of the park are the petrified tree trunks, covered by lava during a volcanic eruption back in the 18th century. The trail through the park is not difficult to hike and takes you by all the stunning sculptures left behind once the lava cooled. Facilities such as restrooms and picnic areas are available, but the park has no access to drinking water, so be sure to bring your own. There is no admission fee to enter the park.
