It takes about 7 hours for a round trip up Gorely Volcano, the calderas and the active volcano are gorgeous.

We climbed Gorely one day after the Mutnovsky volcano. Luckily it is not as steep and the trail is much easier. (see review together with Mutnovsky volcano)

About 4km one way with elevation of 700m from the bottom of the volcano. Easy route. Great views with volcano lake and panorama view of the mountain range from the top.
