Located on Genovesa Island, this dry landing leads to a steep set of natural stairs that are the only access to the high cliffs surrounding Darwin Bay. The rocky trail winds its way through several colonies of nesting sea birds to a wooded area of lush green lava morning glories, stark palo santo trees, and the occasional green-and-yellow lava cactus. Among the vegetation, red-footed boobies and some species of Darwin finches can be seen. Eventually, the trail leads to a flat, rocky area formed by lava flows. Here, the air is filled with small black-and-white storm petrels, which nest in cracks of the hardened lava. Look for the elusive, well-camouflaged short-eared owl, which, in the absence of hawks, feeds during the day. Genovesa is also a popular destination for scuba diving.
