Love this short burst to the top. Nothing like climbing up/through the disintegrating vent of a dormant volcanoe, only to arrive at one of the most stunning 360 views on the lake.

Followed the directions, but was not able to find the trail head from the description. The road off 89 did not exist in this area.

Spectacular view and interesting volcanic formations! Nice wildflowers along the way. The trailhead was hard to find, and nothing is marked. Blackwell Canyon Rd. is not specifically marked, in fact the road actually has another name, but don't let this fool you. There is a sign that says "Blackwell Canyon" and points down long road toward a campground. This is the way! When you find the powerlines, follow them up the hill to the very top, then take a left anywhere you want and scamper up to the top as you blaze your own trail. It's worth the effort for this view! I don't recommend the other pullout trailhead mentioned in the guide. It is extremely steep and has very loose dirt. Good for the adventurous, but if you've got kids with you, take the Blackwell Canyon route.
