Park rangers said you can view both of them from Hawaii Volcanoes NPS as seen in the photo of Kilauea erupting on the left-hand side of the following photo and see Mauna Loa erupting on the right-hand side. 

Of course, to get this perfect view the weather needs to be clear so you can see both volcanoes erupting. 

Hawaii Volcanoes NPS said the park has increased its access to pedestrians and bicyclists due to this remarkable eruption. 

Best spots to see both volcanoes erupting:

  • Kūpinaʻi Pali (Waldron Ledge) from Kīlauea Visitor Center
  • Kīlauea Overlook
  • Overlook near Keanakākoʻi Crater

As of right now Mauna Loa Trail, backcountry cabins and the high elevation areas of the Mauna Loa road are still closed off to the public. 

It’s important to plan ahead when thinking about visiting Hawaii Volcanoes National Park because things can change within minutes.
