It was to hot for us! But really neat to see the petroglyphs. Go early in day, not in summer. ☀️
You walk on lava rock to a reddish raised wooden platform to see petroglyphs. There's not a designated trail, but if you stay within the stacked rocks (a guide had mentioned these are trail markers) you'll find it.
Basic hike over the lava to ancient petroglyphs.
Ok. Dull walk but interesting hieroglyphs.
