Lava Tubes Trail

Baker, California

Lava Tubes Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The lava tubes are a very short but incredibly interesting hike, especially for those with children. Lava tubes form when hot lava reaches the earth’s surface and cools. The upper layer hardens while lava continues to flow beneath it. There are several places in this particular tube where lava continued to flow on top and broke through the upper crust, forming holes that allow light into the now hollow and cavernous formation."
