Really easy and short trail

Really enjoyed this trail and the transitions to different vistas. It was really short and easy to do for my daughter, brother and I.

This is always a fun walk if you're willing to drive out there. It is almost always quiet when we go out there. The kids love climbing on the cinder piles and sliding down. They also love climbing all over the rocks back in the canyon. We always have a fun time exploring out there with the kiddos (7& 8).... More

visited here for the pumpkin patch. Mm.. The hay ride was what made it worth it. More for very small children.

This hike is unlike anything I've ever seen. To walk into a collapsed volcano is a very unique experience. It's a pretty easy hike, there is one small ladder that needs to be climbed, but it's open & flat for the most part. The inside of the volcano is fun to boulder through & if you boulder to the top,... More

I'm an avid hiker in the Pacific NW, so maybe I expect too much of trails. The hike had little to offer along the way. Once you got to the back, things got interesting. The colors and texture of the cliffs look like something from a different planet. The hike itself was somewhat boring, but it was worth it in... More

I was clued in to this hike by a nifty book, BOOTS & BURGERS: AN ARIZONA HANDBOOK FOR HUNGRY HIKERS, by Roger Naylor. It combines my two favorite things in the world, hiking and eating at diners after hiking – what a natural! So I went through the book with a fine-tooth comb and started marking hikes I want to...

Hiked this today with my wife, my 5 year old daughter and my 9 month old daughter in her hike a poose. I had read about it a year or so ago in Arizona Highways. I was a little worried about the 5 year old, but the whining never started with an easy pace and lots of stops for learning.... More

Was a very fun hike, even with the rattle snake on the trail. That did lower my wife's enthusiasm a little. The end of the hike is what makes it all worthwhile - but I will not ruin that for you. Well worth doing and not at all difficult for families.

The trail is completely flat until you reach a short ladder to get into the cone. Once in, the scenery is amazing. It honestly looks like another planet entirely. There are trees and bushes, but the ground is made up of black, red, purple, and crimson lava rocks. The walls of the cone are made of thousand foot cliffs, rolling... More

This was a fun and unique trip - easy to find - many other reviews cover directions. There is a parking lot at the trail head, but no restrooms (just fyi). Easy trail to hike to get to the volcano, no elevation changes - about 1.5 miles each way- be sure to take water with you. Very neat to see... More
