I loved this trail. So much history, tradition and culture on this trail. The petroglyphs were very neat, too! Good vibes on this trail

It was to hot for us! But really neat to see the petroglyphs. Go early in day, not in summer. ☀️

You walk on lava rock to a reddish raised wooden platform to see petroglyphs. There's not a designated trail, but if you stay within the stacked rocks (a guide had mentioned these are trail markers) you'll find it.
