    Pisgah Lava Tubes

    Pisgah Lava Tubes Professional Guide

    Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

    "Pisgah Crater is a volcanic cinder cone believed to have formed as recently as 25,000 years ago. A nearby vent emitted a flow of molten rock that formed a large lava field. As the outer shell of lava cooled in the air, an inner layer continued to flow in places, leaving dozens of lava tubes hidden beneath the surface. This trip visits three of these tubes.

    It’s a truly remarkable destination, and it could easily be spoiled; furthermore, the caves are protected by law. Take special care to protect the area. Remind your hiking partners not to leave trash or deface the rock, and carry out any trash you might discover."
