The Visitors Center views are expansive. This is South East.
Visitors Center / Sunken Garden
The visitors center is right next to our sunken garden. Guests are invited to walk down into the sunken garden and look at what is one of the shortest streams in Hawaii, less than 200ft long! Actually it is a segment of lava tube that has collapsed, with water emerging from a nearly blocked tube, and exiting through a cave.
Here Derek, our trail designer and leader, is working on the edge of this collapsed lava tube.
The Cave at the End of the Stream
The stream that runs through the sunken garden drops into a cave. Notice that the cave has many of the colors in the Lavaloha logo. Many thousands of years ago, lava flowed through this cave.
