The Volcano Road leading to the crater rim is approximately two miles. Trailers and towed vehicles are prohibited.
Because the road has no shoulders, bicycles and pedestrians are only permitted when the road is closed to vehicles after park hours.
Snow, ice, and/or severe thunderstorms can also close the Volcano Road.
Current road conditions are available by calling the monument at 575-278-2201 ext. 302.
