Event Details

This monthly program on second Sundays is aimed at bringing together the members of the Friends of Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park to explore the park’s beautiful trails.

Join FHVNP for a guided geological hike to explore features from Footprints Trail to Mauna Iki in the Ka‘u Desert.  The 4-mile round trip hike begins at the Footprints trailhead, where we will examine textural details of an ‘a‘a lava flow.  Once we descend to the sandy desert, we’ll view footprints fossilized in the muddy ash by Keoua’s fallen army in 1790.    As we approach Mauna Iki, we will see a pahoehoe lava field with unusual secondary mineralization that results in beautiful surface patterns.  From there, we’ll ascend Mauna Iki (little mountain) to explore a variety of volcanic features.

This event is presented by the Friends of Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  Program cost is FREE for Friends members.  Non-members are welcome to join the Friends in order to attend.  And, of course, additional donations are always accepted.  Park entrance fees apply.
