We hiked out twice during our trip, leaving from the parking area located East of the flow, close to the houses, sorry, i forget the name.
First hike: met a few park rangers at the flow who were doing studies and getting info to update the website regarding lava flow activity. Flows were about 50 yards from the sea. Spent a few hours learning from these great people...loved it!
Second hike: we heard the lava was anticipated to breach for the first time in a long time, so we left early and spent most of the day. Lava was trickling over the edge when we got there and by the time we left it was pouring over in multiple locations. Got some fantastic pix and vids. The power of mother nature close up and at her best!
Recommend proper foot wear, walking stick, sunscreen, hat, and LOTS OF WATER!!! we brought 6 litres each and food in backpacks, Be prepared!
