Kahuku Unit

Top choice national park in Kahuku Unit

Kahuku Unit's four hiking trails that lead through green pastures to volcanic cinder cones, lava tree molds, rainforests and lava flows come alive during the excellent ranger-guided hikes (offered some weekends; advance reservations not usually required), but you are welcome to enjoy them by yourself on any weekend (Friday to Sunday). Double-check opening hours at Kilauea Visitor Center before making the trip, as the park keeps expanding them. The entrance is 4 miles west of Waiʻohinu mauka (inland) off Hwy 11, at Mile 70.5.
