Located a few miles from Pahoa on Highway 132, the Lava Tree State
Park grants a cool respite to weary travelers under the park's magnificent
canopy of towering Albezia trees. The park short loop trail allows
visitors to view tree molds that were formed as molten lava cooled
quickly around native Ohia trees leaving cylindrical columns of black
lava that give the park its namesake.
