My husband and I enjoyed this trail. It took us about 45 minutes total. The views of the volcano and mountain are incredible.

This trail is great if you are really into geology or are in need of a shorter hike. It was super easy and had some paved parts for greater accessibility.

Although all we did when we visited was go on the short and easy Lava Trail, there are other challenges very close by for hikers. Lenox Crater is a short walk from the parking lot and this is a crater you are allowed to climb, steep and about 1 mile to get up and down. Short distance back to the visitor center and next to the campground is the O'Leary Peak TH of 7 to 10 miles O/B depending on whether you go to the ranger tower or to the peak. We thought Lava Trail and other close by turnouts where very interesting.
