Lava Tree State Park
When a lava flow swept through a forest of Ohia trees in Pahoa in the 1700s, it created a permanent mold of the tree trunks it went rushing past. These molds still stand today, a unique reminder of mother nature’s power.
A fairly short path makes a loop through the Lava Tree State Park and past all the best specimens; it should only take you 30-45 minutes to walk the entire thing. But it’s a worthwhile stop on your journey. Lava tree molds aren’t something you get to see every day!
