Walk along a lava trail in Kannabe

Mt. Kannabe is a volcanic mountain active 25,000 years ago, leaving the area with volcanic rocks. One common rock you can find at most sites is scoria, a type of porous volcanic rock born from lava that cooled down midair after being ejected by a volcano. Lovers of nature or geology will love collecting rocks from here!
