This is the real American Southwest, with a wildness and emptiness that allows you a taste of frontier life.

This trail was a lot of fun, with several different ways to access. We connected to the lava tubes trail via the petrified dunes. The tube we explored had a few ways in, with plenty of fun little scrambles. Great hike!

I went into all 3 lava caves with my friends and all 3 of them are caved in. we searched all the areas of all the caves but they were caved in. the farthest we got was in the first cave and traveled a few hundred feet before it was over. it looked fun but now the caves are caved in.

Loved this. Especially the cool temps of the tubes themselves. Super cool if you're a geology nerd too.

This was an easy/moderate trail. Family fun..beautiful scenery. There is some climbing but not too bad. The cave was cool and goes pretty far in but you'd need to bring your headlamps in order to go further in. Kids enjoyed it!!

Great family hike. The kids loved climbing down in the lava tubes. Great views at the overlook.

Pretty easy hike! The ground is rocky and uneven but otherwise not too bad. You get to hike to two different lava tubes, the first one is harder to get into, but if you hike a little further down the trail the second tube has an easier access and is super cool to see.

Easy trail for us and the kids (ages 4, 5 and 7) to explore, capped with some petrified sand dune climbing.

Reason to take trail; 150 ft decent into lava tube.

It was beautiful and fun. I would consider this more of a nature trek than a hike as far as difficulty. We actually started on the Lava Tube trail then proceeded to do a walk about via three or four others for a three hour tour. I recommend this for the views!
