Lava Tree State Park
Tree molds that rise like blackened smokestacks formed here in 1790 when a lava flow swept through the ohia forest. Some reach as high as 12 feet. The meandering trail provides close-up looks at some of Hawaii's tropical plants and trees. There are restrooms and a couple of picnic pavilions and tables. Mosquitoes live here in abundance, so be sure to bring repellent. COST: Free. OPEN: Daily 8--4:30.
