It is recommended that you wear decent shoes since the dirt trails can get a little slippery and the lava rocks are sharp.

Tom’s Rating:

Trail Info: The trailhead is easy to find, it is directly across the highway from mile marker 38.5 along highway 30. If you’d like to hike a little further, you can park at 38.0 and make your way to the blowhole and hike through some neat rock formations. This is also known as the acid war zone.
