Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Feel the cool, inky darkness of a cave below a scorching volcanic desert. Lava tubes are formed as the sides and surface of a lava flow solidify, covering with hardened basalt the liquid rock that still courses inside. Once the flow stops, the lava drains away and leaves a hollow tube with several distinctive features inside."
