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.
