The Lava Canyon Trail explores an area scoured by lahars (volcanic mudflows) during the 1980 eruption. The trail begins as a paved, barrier-free trail and quickly changes to a more challenging trail, including a 1.4 mile loop with an exhilarating suspension bridge.
DANGER – Stay on this Trail. Lava Canyon has steep drops and big waterfalls. People that have left the trail have been swept over the falls to their deaths.
