This is easily accessible by auto right next to road. Great view. Terrific combination of colors in one area. Dark lava in one area and multiple colors in others. Short trail out on the point. Don't miss

This is a nice welcome spot to stop driving in from the West. There are views of both the desert and the mountains. There is a good amount of parking. Facilities, too.
