Chain of Craters Road safe with Infants

Jump to last reply

We will be visiting Hawaii - The Big Island at the end of the month with a 6 month baby. We've read a lot about the VOG issue and the safety concerns for small kids and babies and therefore not planning on visiting the Volcano Park.

But we are confused about what parts are still considered safe. For example is it ok to visit Hilo? Can we still do the Chain of Craters Road? We would still like to see the lava from a distance so can we do this drive and use circulated air? Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
