Crater Rim Trail information

At the time of writing, a large section of this trail, from the Jaggar Museum south to the Chain of Craters Road junction, was closed. When the volcano is calm, this 11.5-mile loop hike showcases just how dramatically the volcano has altered the landscape over time. Ask at Kilauea Visitor Center about which trail sections are currently open.
