Chain of Craters Road

Chain of Craters Road (formerly Cockett's Trail) was dedicated on April 15, 1928. Built at a cost of $148,000, it ended at the rim of Makaopuhi Crater.


The 19-mile paved road that goes through the East Rift and coastal area of the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park in Hawaii. This eventually ends where a lava flow has literally overtaken the road.

Lava erupted by Kilauea Volcano between 1983 and 1990 repeatedly invaded communities along its southern coast, destroying more than 180 homes, a visitor center, highways, and treasured historical and archaeological sites.

The early Hawaiians revered Pele, volcano goddess, and made offerings to placate her wrath. The park was recognized for its important volcanic sites (including two of the world's most active volcanoes); its volcanic island ecosystem, which preserves one of the largest significant ecosystems on the Hawaiian Islands; and its cultural and historic sites.
