  • This is a really interesting quick walk. There is a trail you can take but we were beat by the time we got here. Read all the signs because it’s really interesting and explains what you’re seeing. And smelling. The warnings are funny too, though they are probably meant to scare you more than make you laugh :)
  • Pretty cool experience, beware of sulphuric smell especially if you have lung problems, pregnant or sensitive to smells. The walk is easy and short, on your way a lot of information on the signs
