 Currently: Big IslandWhat to See Lava Flows › Articles

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 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!
