The Lava Falls Trail is located on the monument's youngest lava flow, which makes it a great area to see many lava features including ropy pahoehoe, squeeze-ups, and other geological curiosities. The trail is a rough 1 mile loop marked by cairns.

The trailhead has pit toilets and picnic tables.

Please be prepared before setting out on this or any other hike.
