And now, with a map, you can drive and walk on the lava fields, see the rock formations, look at shapes, colors, and . . . try to think if the names given on the map fit with what you see!
Many names are linked to hell, (ah?), like Devils Orchards, inferno cone, other places have poetic names, like Dewdrop Cave, and other are just describing what you see, like Spatter Cones, Big Sink Overlook. . . . .
It is easy to reach all these points by car, and then walk on well maintained trails. If I can dare a recommendation, I would suggest to walk up the Inferno Cone, the second highest point of the area and have a 360° look over the volcanic fields.

Directions: Road 20 between Arco and Twin Falls, north side of Snake River Plain.
There are camp grounds and van parking grounds
Entrance: I went in free, the gate was open; I do not know about fees.
