  • We stopped here after the kids found it online. I was a little weirded out the attraction is located at a rest area, but a great little stop to learn about history of the volcano eruption in Idaho...  more »
  • We have stopped here numerous times. It is wonderful to walk the trail. Makes a nice exercise break. Part of the trail is wheelchair friendly.  more »

  • Pretty mind blown, I would definitely recommend coming during the sun set
  • Park at Lava Hiking Trail parking lot on hwy 20. There is a 1.5 mile loop and a long trail to the volcano. Not exactly an easy hike. There are lots of cracks in the earth you need to jump over, and the trail is hard to see
