We stopped at El Malpais as part of an RV trip to national parks and monuments in the New Mexico area. The rangers at the visitor's center were very helpful planning our visit. We hiked some of the trails and stopped at the Sandstone overlooks and the natural arch. The views were spectacular and on par with other parks in... 更多

I only had time for one day of activity, so I chose the El Calderon trail and included a short caving excursion in the Junction lava tube cave near... 更多
I had been traveling for a week, by the time I reached this treasure. I only wish I had been able to hike this, as well. However, the guides, and Rangers at the Visitor Center were very helpful, and guided us to a drive that overlooked lava fields and scenery that I will never forget.
