Airsoft and Paintball

This is a great little spot. Each team starts at one side of the collapsed lava tube. You can see each other really well from that point. Then you take the hill and get the other guys off it. It can be a little more tiring place to play because you're going up and down the hill every game. It makes an ideal location for Attack & Defend scenarios. There's rock ridges and canyons, a lot of sagebrush and rocks , and some manmade rock barriers. If you're used to playing in the trees, it might take a little getting used to but you'll find it a surprisingly good place to play.

One thing that's really nice about this place is the location itself. It's right off the highway and the parking area is well defined and close enough to be your base camp but far enough away to be out of harms way.

As with any location, it's a good idea to walk the field before playing to make sure there's no dangerous animals behind the next bunker at gametime. Rattlesnakes are your most likely here.
