“Intense and challenging or downright dangerous!”— Megan W
Upon reaching river level, the trail turns right to follow the bank where you'll find a few sandy beaches and a viewpoint. The trail ends on cliffs above the famous Lava rapid where, if you're lucky, you'll see rafters caroming through. There is no shade or water on this serious excursion so plan accordingly. (River water must be filtered prior to drinking)
The Hiking Project mobile app may be useful for wayfinding but make sure your data is current and you device charged!
