It was Really easy going out to the cave but the trail was harder to follow back. We ended up having to bushwhack in order to get back to the trail.

It was totally unlike any hike I’ve ever done. Sorta felt like I was walking on Mars

Does have a few rough steep spots but even my 5 and 3 year old were able to make it to the top with a little bit of help on the slippery areas. They loved being in the volcano and the view is great from the top.

Th perfect hike or those with small children. Once you get to the amphitheater kids love exploring the rocks and playing in the sand. If you go in the summer the sand can get very hot so make sure to go earlier in the day so the kids can still play. So many cool places to take pictures.

Perfect if you have littles. Short, beautiful, and young kids love exploring the little slot canyon. Plus if you go in the summer, the little canyon is completely shaded so you get a little break from the sun.

Good hike that ends with a great view from the peak. Best part is coming down the valley with the brown lava rock on one side, the white sandstone on the other, and the red hills straight ahead.

Easy way to see a slot canyon if you don’t have time for a big trek. Can be in and out in 10 min!

Great adventure for families, and anyone wanting a short hike it’s a sun break. The lave tube were fun and nice cool break from the sun. We climbed down in them and the kids loved it.

Closed for summer 2018. We didn’t get to do it.

This was a fun quick trail. Half of the trail was in a river bottom with deep sand which isn’t ideal. The elevation changes throughout the hike made it fun and different. Wouldn’t suggest this trail for trail running.

Quick hike to see the names after some longer hiking in the park. As someone else said, a bit steep in the area of the names. Quick, easy hike.

We followed the lead of the previous reviewer and traveled in a clockwise fashion. This worked out well for us. Great hike today. Variety of terrain and sights to see. Really enjoyed climbing up and over the petrified dunes and exploring the lava tube. Beautiful scenery.

This hike gave us a lot of different scenery through the park. Petrified dunes was awesome however we lost the trail at one point because the markers are too far apart. Still an amazing hike

We took the petrified dunes and red sand trails in to the canyon, which is a fairly arduous and hot path but clearly marked and padre canyon is beautiful - well worth the trek in. There was no one around and we found many opportunities to scramble and climb the mountains to the left of the canyon. The actual trailhead is immediately to right (easy to walk past) but even if you miss the trail there's still plenty to explore. Make sure you bring lots of water - it gets very hot and once you get in you'll want to keep going.

We did this trail after a very long day of hiking and it was the perfect way to end. As said, the hike is fairly easy, but the lava tubes are spectacular. At the end of the butterfly trail, the path splits into two if you go left you'll hit a massive lava tube that you can explore easily (with flashlights) to the right is a smaller tube, if you're little you can still crawl in a ways, but cool to look at regardless.

A great end to the day!

We did most of this route, it offers a diverse landscape of canyons, sands, and caves! Maybe start with Petrified Dunes (go clockwise) so you get the most strenuous climb out of the way and then you can end with the lava tubes which are cool (both literally and qualitatively). Make sure you bring a flashlight for the tubes.

A fun trail all in all!

This trail is a blast! Well marked, lots of elevation change and pretty views, as well as many opportunities for scrambling and going off the path. Not too long but connects to many other great trails. Look out for the overlook (just off this trail) - provides stunning views and a fun little climb.

Remember to bring lots of water - there's very little coverage and there are strenuous bits.

Once you get back past the Tuachan bldgs it’s lovely. Wild flowers are blooming

Varied terrain, Beutiful views, great payoff at the turnaround point!

Decent trail for hiking. Somewhat of a rough trail as you come to the top. I actually did some trail running on this trail. Great for hill training. Awesome views of Snow Canyon.
