“Continuing through the Inside Desert, this trail leads hikers to an abandoned stone cabin and a weapons testing crater.”— Keaton Reed
This section passes by several dry lake beds, called the Inside Lakes. Visiting these lakes requires short detours from the trail. Another interesting feature is the Bengoechea Cabin, an abandoned sheepherders stone cabin from the early 1900s. This cabin is a short distance from the trail, and it serves as a significant landmark in an otherwise barren sea of sagebrush.
A short distance from the cabin is a blast crater from a military test conducted in the 1960s. It is a large, deep crater. Some more information about this interesting bit of US history is available in this article from the Twin Falls Times-News.
