Activities & Features


Mauna Ulu Pu‘u Huluhulu Trail is an easy kid friendly hike in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park that winds through beautiful scenery. The trailhead is located at the Mauna Ulu parking area. The parks says along this trail hikers "experience a lava landscape from the 1969-1974 Mauna Ulu flow. Walk by lava tree molds and climb 210 feet (64m) to the top of a forested cinder cone, Pu'u Huluhulu (hairy hill). View Mauna Ulu's steaming shield, which is similar to the now active Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō cone in the distance. On a clear day you can see Mauna Loa, Mauna Kea and the Pacific Ocean." Hawaii Volcanoes has two campgrounds, the Namakanipaio and the Kulanaokuaiki.
