Chain of Craters Ground Tour

Stop 4: Where the Current Lava Is!

Chain of Craters Road once continued all the way along the coastline of Kilauea, but not any more! Since 1989, the road has been cut by the young lava flows that are erupting from the Pu'u O'o cone on the East Rift Zone. This doesn't mean that tourists do not get to see some action, as this stop shows us.
