Lava Tree State Park preserves a site where a 1790 lava flow quicky overran a forest of Ohia trees. The fast flowing lava, up to 10 feet deep, surrounded the trees then quickly receded. Moisture in the trees cooled a thin shell of lava around each tree, leaving molds of the seared trunks.

A trail 7 tenths of a mile in length loops through the forest of lava tree molds. There are well maintained picnicking facilities and bathrooms, but there is no drinking water available in the park.
