Event Details

Haʻakulamanu – Sulphur Banks

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. This month’s walk explores Haʻakulamanu – Sulphur Banks.  We will start at the Kīlauea Visitor Center and follow the trail to Sulphur Banks, then cross Crater Rim Drive to the steam vents and Kīlauea viewing area.  This easy walk is mostly on flat and level ground.  Be prepared for variable weather conditions, including sunny, windy, chilly, and/or rainy.

Participants provide their own transportation to Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park.  From Highway 11, between mile markers 28 and 29, turn into Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park (entrance fees apply).  After going through the park’s entrance stations, take the first right into the parking area, and we will meet in front of the Kīlauea Visitor Center.

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.

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Distance: 1.2 mile (2 km) round trip from Kīlauea Visitor Center

Visitors with heart or respiratory conditions (such as asthma), pregnant women, infants, or young children should avoid this walk.
