  • The park was partially closed when we were there so many limited areas. The rangers gave detailed directions and info sheets to help us know where to go to get the best of our visit. The movie was great for a first time visitor and I got reacquainted after being here several times before. Be kind to the rangers they can’t change the nature of the volcano nor can they ignore our safety. Drive safe.
  • This is a good place with knowledgeable rangers who will tell you which hiking trails are open and will recommend them to you based on what it is you want to see and how much work you actually want to do. Do bear in mind that the canyon rim drive is closed due to the eruption in 2018. but it is possible to park your car and walk about the mile into the road so that you can at least stand at the rim of the volcano. Sadly there were no visible lava flows at the time I was there. It also rains quite a bit so do be prepared for that
