We visited the National Park in March 2013. The park is huge and they have miles and miles of trails you can walk if you are up for an all-day trek. We decided to stay in our rented jeep wrangler and explore the park that way, considering the wind was blowing about 25 mph and it was about 20 degrees cooler up on top! The park is truly amazing in that there are still 2 active volcanoes that are erupting sulfur and other gasses on a daily basis. Because of this, the north rim of the volcano was too dangerous to get close to, and the park was closed on that side. We did get out and take a lot of picture of the steam vents and the crater. We heard you could do a helicopter ride where you actually got to see lava flowing into the ocean but did not have time as this was just a day trip to the Big Island.
