Following the beautiful Kalama River, this trail presents a stunning and unique riparian forest environment to explore. The river is lined with dark basalt lava beds, while this black rock terrain is lined with emerald moss and vibrant fern clusters. It’s a remarkable forest and river valley, well worth the long drive.
