Lava rocks and prickly bush with a view

Its pretty close to the snake river, and at the trailhead of a non vehicle trail. Its after Celebration Park on Victory Ln, you drive around the park and it turns into a dirt road. BLM or County land I think. Not many folks here. Smells like horse droppings. Pretty rough terrain getting to the end.…

Great hike with a oasis at the end!

Easy hike to a stocked pond. Not much elevation difference, on a good path.
