This was a fun quick trail. Half of the trail was in a river bottom with deep sand which isn’t ideal. The elevation changes throughout the hike made it fun and different. Wouldn’t suggest this trail for trail running.

We followed the lead of the previous reviewer and traveled in a clockwise fashion. This worked out well for us. Great hike today. Variety of terrain and sights to see. Really enjoyed climbing up and over the petrified dunes and exploring the lava tube. Beautiful scenery.

We did most of this route, it offers a diverse landscape of canyons, sands, and caves! Maybe start with Petrified Dunes (go clockwise) so you get the most strenuous climb out of the way and then you can end with the lava tubes which are cool (both literally and qualitatively). Make sure you bring a flashlight for the tubes.

A fun trail all in all!
