Hawaii Volcanoes National Park Trails

Jump to last reply

Hello - I have a short time on the Big Island and need some advice. I land on Tuesday afternoon (3:45PM Hilo) and leave friday afternoon (4:00PM), so I don't have much time. I like active outdoor activities. Can someone give me some opinions on the trails at HVNP and my draft itinerary? Anything you would add or skip? THANKS!

Tuesday: Drive from Hilo Airport to HVNP. Is there anything I can do at night?

Wednesday: Morning - hike Halema'uma'u Trail one way (3.5 miles), Evening - Drive down Chain of Craters (20 miles), hike to lava flow.

Thursday: All day - hike Napau Trail to eruption point(14 miles)

Friday: Morning - hike Kilaueau Iki Trail (4 miles) and view Thurston Lava Tube. Afternoon - Leave BI for Oahu for 4 nights

Any recommendations on where to stay? Volcano House is all booked up.

Also, is it hard to get permits to do the hikes? Are they strict on trial entrance if I am unable to secure permits?
