The public is invited to join the Friends of Hawaii Volcanoes Park for a “Sunday Walk in the Park” on Aug. 12 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. This monthly program on second Sundays is aimed at bringing together the friends of the park to share in some beautiful trails.
Volcanologist Cheryl Gansecki will lead a four-mile round-trip hike to explore features from Footprints Trail to Mauna Iki. At the Footprints trailhead, hikers will examine textural details of an ‘a‘a lava flow. Descending to the sandy desert, the group will view footprints preserved in the muddy ash in 1790.
