Explore Outdoors: Go underground to experience a Northern California lava tube
If you're up for a drive and small hike, there is a spot in Northern California worth going underground to experience the power of volcanic activity. That spot is called Pluto's Cave, located in a remote area outside the town of Weed. "It is off the beaten path," said Josh McNair, a travel blogger with California Through My Lens. So far off the beaten path, it is recommended you bring a flashlight — even during the middle of the day. If you go, make sure to check the Klamath National Forest's website for current health restrictions and reminders about the special, sensitive ecosystem contained in the cave. Watch this week's edition of Explore Outdoors in the player above to learn more about the lava tube inside Klamath National Forest.
