Volcanoes National Park
(Kalapana Trail)

After Dark in the Volcanoes National Park are series of evening programs, presented by guest speakers, featuring topics on geology, biology, Hawaiian culture, and history.
If you want to see lava and walk behind end of the road, currently (July 18, 2003), lava is not flowing into the ocean. However, lava is flowing down the hillside more than 1 mile beyond the end of Chain of Craters Road. The hike is about 2 1/2 miles roundtrip and visitors should allow at least 3 hours to do the hike. If lava is flowing nearby, park rangers on duty at the road's end try to mark out trails with reflectors that visitors may follow. Often, the path is not marked and visitors should talk to the rangers on duty for current information.
