Off of Pahoa-Pohoiki Road, southeast of Pahoa Town and in the district of Puna is Lava Trees State Park. Take the 1 kilometre loop trail in this 7-hectacre State Monument to view the unusual lava moulds of tree trunks. In the 1700’s, lava flow swept through the area, coating the trunks of Ohia trees, leaving tall lava moulds of the tree trunks in their wake, frozen in time.

An easy walk, this is your chance to see and take photos of the work of Pele (the volcano goddess) and her amazing sculpture garden. Public toilets and picnic tables are available.
