Great, easy trail! Mt.Nebo is our go to place to get away. We love the campsites, sunrise and sunset points, and this trail is a nice way to spend several hours at this park.

It’s amazing to me that no one says anything about the primitive road that takes you to the trailhead. Maybe that’s common knowledge out in the superstitions, but anyway, getting to the trailhead is a bumpy and unpaved ride that can be done in a standard sedan but best with a high clearance vehicle.

The trail is nice and I wouldn’t say it was easy, more moderate. Definitely beats other trails in the valley in looks; lots of green even in the winter.

It was a tough trail for me as I haven’t been hiking in years, but it was worth it! I saw the faint petroglyph on the wall. Someone had scrawled their name over it but you can still see it! Just knowing an ancient people were there is amazing! Loved it.

Did a solo hike here! Looking forward to going back with friends!

Hard and rewarding hike. It keeps things interesting with the ladders and cables, definitely would not recommend to someone who is not experienced.

This trail was just okay - nothing special as there is not really a waterfall at this time of year, unless I missed it somehow. Hiked further down into the canyon off trail and that was cooler.

Great hike, nice view. I loved the echo the caves made when we got to the top.

its a very nice hike!! I'd say it's rated hard only because of it not being an actual trail but a lot of boulders to cross over which is really fun. I brought my dogs and they loved being off the leash frolicking around!

Awful! 3 break ins during daylight and one couple was only away for 30 mins! We ended up leaving after seeing the damage people were doing! Didn’t feel safe at all! The drive made us feel like we were in a 3rd world country is was so gross and run down!

I really enjoyed this hike. I went for the first time last weekend. Fairly challenging and I would highly recommend it. I didn’t run into too many people on the trail, so it offers nice moments of solitude.

Amazing rock formations


sweet trail run

To reach the active lava flows (as of Jan 2018), this hike consists of about a half mile paved walk, four miles of gravel along the coast, and about 2 miles over very uneven lava flows - each way. It is a very, very windy and dry hike. Bring lots of water - more than you think you will need. It took us about 5-6 hours to do the round trip hike, but witnessing the active lava was worth the trip.

As you get farther out, the lava flows are just beautiful. They are sparkly and iridescent. We also saw Pepe’s hair in one spot. When reaching the active flow, it is very hot and sulfur smelling.

Great trail. Major elevation gains in the end. The views from White Rocks are amazing and the Sand Cave is awesome. Definitely worth the leg burner hike!

Took the dogs, it’s a steady incline about halfway through, but a beautiful view and well maintained trail.

Great trail and history. Old site of a mineral spring resort from late 1800s and early 1900s. Ppl believed the water had healing powers and came from all over to drink and bath in them.
