I climbed Mauna Loa last year as a part of a trip to the Big Island. And I have to say that it was HANDS DOWN the highlight of my trip. In fact, I consider Mauna Loa to be one of my favorite summits EVER!...More

I hiked up the Mauna Loa Trail to Red Hill Cabin. It is a strenuous hike of about 7.5 miles and 3,500' elevation gain. It was worth the effort to stay overnight in the cabin and see the sunrise from there.

Our trip to Mauna Loa included a trip up the Mauna Loa Observatory Road from Saddle Road. This is an amazing stretch of 17 miles of road across lava beds. Throughly enjoyable.

Another way to enjoy the Volcanic area besides the National Volcano Park. We do have to be cautious on the narrow curves, not able to see the incoming cars, we had to honk a few time to warn others. The paths are rugged and not...More
