After driving to the top of the volcano and hiking the rim this trail is somewhat of the ugly step sister...as it doesn't have the stunning views. The trail is marked as strenuous but I didn't find it hard at all. There are a few spots that have pretty views but clearly nothing like the rim trail. I did happen on a deer so you may encounter one or two as well.
