Lava Tree State Monument Review

Tree molds that rise like blackened smokestacks formed here in 1790, when a lava flow swept through the ‘ohi‘a forest. Some reach as high as 12 feet. A meandering trail provides close-up looks at some of Hawaii's tropical plants and trees. There are restrooms and a couple of picnic pavilions and tables. Mosquitoes live here in abundance, so come prepared.

    An Eerie Look at Lava...

    This park was easy to find, free and very cool. An easy walk through the park to see the eerie lava-coated trees. I was disapointed in the amount of work being done to the park during our visit but it was free so I can't complain that much.
