Crater Rim Drive Tour - Stop #1 - Kīlauea Visitor Center
Start your visit at the Kīlauea Visitor Center located just beyond the park's entrance station. The park is open from 24 hours daily year round. Kīlauea Visitor Center is open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Here, you will receive the latest information on trails, ranger-led activities, road conditions, and safety precautions. Because of the dynamic nature of Kīlauea, volcanic conditions can change rapidly.
If you have only one to three hours, explore the summit of Kīlauea Volcano via Crater Rim Drive, taking you through both desert and lush tropical rain forest, while providing access to well-marked scenic stops and short walks.
