Fun hike, it was cool to see the rocks change beneath your feet, we actually spent about 3 hours following the 'trail', before turning back.

So cool to see but don't try to climb off trail that stuff is sharp! I made the mistake of trying to follow my boyfriend when he wanted to explore and cell and cut myself lol. Oops.

A great hike for geology nuts and people who like sharp things. The trail isn't really well marked past a certain point, but that just means you choose your own adventure. Sweeping views off to the north and northeast at trail's end - even a glimpse of nearby Lava Beds National Monument on clear days. This was a tool source used by natives for hundreds of miles around, but nowadays more or less in the middle of nowhere, so it's good for a bit of peace and quiet.
