Flora & Fauna
Time: 15-20 minutes. Difficulty: 1 on top of the cliff; 2-3 to descend and ascend the shoreline. Trailhead: Near the village of Saddlers on the northeast Atlantic coast.
In all of its millions of years, Mt. Liamuiga (Mt. Misery) has produced only one lava flow, and Black Rocks is it. The continual pounding of the waves against the black lava cliffs has created this cluster of oddly shaped boulders.
Nothing dramatic but an oddity worth viewing on an island tour.
