  • Great hike to see a historical gem. Wear sunscreen as it is hot and there is no shade. Also wear sturdy hiking shoes, flip flops aren't ideal.
  • This is something cool to see if you're going down to the bottom of the volcano. However, be forewarned that it's a 3/4 mile hike on uneven terrain to get there and the entire walk on the (nice) boardwalk will take no more than 5 - 10 minutes with pictures. Definitely wear your sunscreen as well.
  • Its a nice hike. Great for people who love history
  • The markings aren't very prominent but still really cool to see. The trail is marked by rock piles and easy to follow.
  • The petroglyphs are a short hike away from the main road, but worth it.
