Easy but a must see if you never seen a lava tube. Parking is in short supply here even during weekdays

Fun easy trail with short moderate descent and ascent to ends of the tube. Bring a flashlight if you want to check out darker corners. Can be chilly so take a jacket. Takes about half hour total for experienced hikers.

Very cool to walk through. Very short. Very easy. But the forests and just being able to walk through the volcano tunnel make it well worth the pit stop. Great photo ops.
