Hughes Mountain Natural Area

Hughes Mountain Natural Area Professional Review and Guide

"Devil’s Honeycomb Trail explores a vast glade on the huge domelike outcropping of preCambrian rock that caps Hughes Mountain.

The pinkish, multisided rhyolite columns for which the trail is named formed when ancient lava flows cooled and contracted. Pleasant mountain breezes sweep the rocky expanse, and panoramic vistas stretch away in three directions, making Hughes Mountain an ideal place to admire the sunset."
