    Hiking in Akaka Falls State Park

    by GracesTrips Updated Apr 7, 2013

    I was soooo looking forward to checking this out! But turns out there is very little hiking involved. It is worth stopping by and checking out but will take you perhaps 30 minutes to walk the entire area.

    No entrance fee, open daily, no overnight camping

    Equipment: Definitely sunscreen!

    Hat
    Sunglasses
    Good hiking shoes
    Water
    Backpack
    Allergy medicine (just in case)
    Towel
    Snacks like fruit and bread
    Camera
    Swim suit

    Abundant hiking opportunities

    Trekking to the lava

    There is an abundance of hiking opportunities on the big island! There are hiking areas near some waterfalls, and other attractions, as well as at the volcanoes. Check the brochures closely to find out more on the ones you're interested in. We hiked to the recent lava flow at Kilauea. We hiked from our car to the site where the rangers were sharing information about the current lava flow (approximately 1 hour roundtrip).

    Equipment: Daytime hiking at Kilauea: bring lots of water, durable walking shoes (thick soles) head covering, and don't forget your camera (both types!)
    Night time hiking in Kilauea: same as above, but be sure to bring a flashlight, and hat is not necessary unless to keep your head dry should it decide to rain.
