Description

This is a short trail that provides a fun look at a massive obsidian flow in Newberry Crater. The tread is comprised of abrasive volcanic glass, so leave your favorite pair of shoes at home and opt for a cheap pair!

Further, dogs should be left at home unless they have rugged booties for their feet.

Flora & Fauna

None... it's just rock.
