Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park

"Most of Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park remains closed due to increased and damaging earthquakes, corrosive volcanic ash, and continuing explosions from Halema‘uma‘u, the summit crater of Kīlauea Volcano." Read More from the National Parks Service.

This is an exception to the hikes on Big Island Hikes. Exploring Pua Po'o in Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park requires a Ranger-led guide, and the cost is $60 per person.

The hike begins inside Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park and travels to this pristine lava tube.
