Halfway down the trail, you will come across a lava cave, with an extremely low ceiling. But if you wriggle through this mouth of the cave, you will reach a much larger and spacious cave.
Outside the cave, you will come across the first petroglyph, though the major chunk of the art is found further up. You will have to walk through firebreak in the area and reach the viewing point.
2,717 petroglyphs cover this area, with numerous varieties of figures. The area is fenced off, so you should carry a binocular, so that you can see the petroglyphs at the middle of the area. The first carving here belongs to a century after the lava was created in A.D. 1300.
Comb the surrounding area to catch a view of the petroglyphs that are scattered throughout. Make sure you have a GPS with you, as you might get lost while looking for the carvings.
