Easy 2.8-mile out-and-back trail that ends with spectacular views of a cinder cone

Features Views

Family Friendly This quick and generally flat trail is fairly easy to navigate for all.

Description

The trail begins at a dirt parking lot about a quarter mile off highway 180. The first mile follows a gradually inclined, wide path among juniper and piñon. Occasional signs mark the correct path. You then scale a six foot wooden ladder and follow a dry stream bed alongside a hill of dark volcanic mineral crystals into the amphitheater of the cinder cone, surrounded by hoodoos. Return by the same path.

Saw a bull very close up! Watch for them in the wooded beginning of the hike. The best part is the rock climbing that even beginners could do. 1.4mi
