Lot B Mamalahoa Hwy, MOUNTAIN VIEW, HI 96771
Fronting the property is Volcano Road also known as Mamalahoa Hwy, Hawaii Belt Road, and Hwy 11. This .639 acre property sits in what was once the forested lands of 'Ola'a. Formerly part of the crowned lands of the Hawaiian monarchy, Olaa, located in the district of Puna and was noted for growth of 'ohi'a, loulu, and other fauna associated with home building, canoe making, and hula of old Hawaii. Over the years the forests were cleared and this specific area was used for sugarcane, hopeful coffee fields, and cattle ranching. There are still remnants of a bygone era with the “Old Volcano Rd” at the rear of the property. Its convenient location places you 20 minutes from the Hilo Airport and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Convenience stores, parks and schools are just minutes up or down the highway and a nice restaurant is just across the street. Take advantage of the cooler climate that mauka offers and the comforts of being on the outskirts of Hilo.
