Easy and leisurely. Recommend good shoes if you plan on going to the lava area (just a bunch of rocks).

Very straightforward trail with a great viewpoint of the Arenal Volcano. Most days have low visibility, so keep that in mind. Great wildlife viewing opportunities on the trail as well. Very beautiful!

Very easy hike. You'll get a nice view of the Volcano. at the top as well as the lava flow paths from the past (look more rocky than anything)
