One of my most favorite trails. you can choose to go up to the peak of the volcano and then down to the base (which can get a little steep at times) or just go around the lake to the base of the volcano. There is also a hidden cave a few hundred feet past the base of the volcano.
Great hike! Nice views! And it's a Volcano
Great hike on a sunny day. It was flooded in the lower section after heavy rain. I really enjoyed the scenery and great views from the top of the old Volcano. Can be a bit muddy so watch out for what you wear.
Nice trails. Old volcanic rock. A lot of cairns set up at front of trail. Going up to top there is areas with shrines and trinkets left there. Very neat trails. Read the signs with the history behind the area!
