  • I loved walking around the steam vents! Some sections of the trail feel more like a suggestion than a formal pathway, but compared to my experiences in other national parks (like Yellowstone) it wasn't difficult to figure out where to go.

If I brought children with me, I would keep their hand in mine. There are areas where you could clearly fall into things that might not be easy or possible to get back out of.
  • Pretty interesting to visit this area of Volcanoes National Park to see the stream vents along the trail indicating thermal activity. Its a nice walk down the trail so I would recommend it.
