Fantastic day activity, impressive lava tube. Can handle the hike in boots or athletic shoes. Takes about 1.5 hours to the end and back. Animal friendly, busy on weekends as expected. Like others have mentioned, take a minute to turn off your lamps and enjoy the primordial dark, definitely worth it.
This is my new favorite trail! It is a pretty easy trail for the first two miles- did some trail running along the first 2 miles, although it is pretty rocky in places. After the first 2 miles, the trail gets really beautiful! You look off the edge to the creek and see tons of desert plants and red rock. There are spots where you climb, so it's a good combo of easy and moderate. I only did about 3 miles in and had to turn around due to rain, but I can't wait to go back and finish!
