  • We loved these and it only takes 30 minutes to see them. You can walk right up to some of the vents and be bathed in steam coming right out of the volcano! I wish we had taken the Sulphur Banks Trail....  more

  • What an experience! True open steam vents in multiple spots. The walk down to the caldera was very short and easy I believe it's only a tenth of a mile ~ 0.1 mile. This trail was a fine loose gravel trail. Once at Kilauea caldera the view is spectacular we came back in the morning we came back in the afternoon we even came back in the evening. As far as entry one private car was $30 to enter volcano National Park. The steam vents are located within the park so in order to access them you have to enter the national Park gate. I encourage the yearly pass to save money on multiple visits as we were visiting this National Park as well as Haleakala National Park on the Island of Maui. I'm not sure if this pricing fluctuates there are other pricing parameters I believe active military are free. To be sure I would check online for entry fees. I highly recommend and will always return to Volcanoes National Park it's one of my favorites.
  • Really cool lookout over the caldera just a short walk from the parking lot. You can see the walls of the caldera right under the walkway giving off steam from the heat of the volcano. I'd recommend coming here in the morning when it is more empty so that you can enjoy the place with less crowds.
