50,000 years ago a huge nickel meteorite hit the earth forming a crater that is 550 feet deep, 2.4 miles in circumference and a very popular tourist stop.

Love stopping at meteor crater. It's a bit of a drive out of Flagstaff, but well worth it. While viewing the crater, I feel like I've been transported to a different planet. It's eerie and cool at the same time.

I did not see any wheelchairs for rental and not to sure about accessibility. The tour can not be done with a wheelchair as it goes out along the rim and is a dirt patch only.
