What's the best trek from a car park to Red Crater and back?

Looking for a short trek to take a few pictures of the volcanoes and return to the car. How long would it take for a return journey?

Any good places to stay overnight in or near Tongariro?

Thanks!

There is no short trek to red crater...none at all. You basically have to walk half the Tongariro Crossing, as it is near exactly the mid-point of the Crossing. Sorry. The best way to photo-op the Tongariro Mtns is propbably from the Mt Ruapehu (Top of the Bruce) tourist chairlifts from above Whakapapa Viillage.
