Beautiful hike along the Yellow 1968 Sendero Bosque / Forest Trail.

Peaceful hike and probably the best view of volcano along with lava rocks.

A nice walk with some decent views of the volcano. Not sure if it would be worth the money back home, but on vacation, it’s a cheap activity that is gratifying.

Other than seeing a lot of lava rocks on the path and views of the volcano, this was a boring hike. I would not do again

Fun hike to get a great view of Arenal Volcano and Lake Arenal. The trail is very well maintained (it is actually raked frequently) and well marked. The Forest Trail is mostly covered, except when you approach the Lava Summit and observation point. The View Point has a Smoothie Stand if you're interested in a tasty, fresh fruit smoothie.
