One of the easiest hikes in the park is also one of the most fascinating. Located just past Volcano Art Center, the Sulfur Banks trail features a boardwalk that leads to the sulfur bluffs. Like a scene from Jurassic Park, volcanic gases rich in sulfur dioxide and hydrogen sulfide swirl from the bluffs, depositing yellow-colored crystals throughout. Farther down the trail, dozens of steam vents emit white steam from small cracks in the earth. It's fun to sit on the grass next to a steam vent and feel the hot, non-toxic steam swirling around you.
