Summer Hours Change

Things To Do
The paved 2 mile Volcano Road to the top and paved trails into the crater and around its rim provide access to explore the volcano and 360 degree views of the surrounding area. While you're there, listen to a ranger-led interpretive program to get a better understanding of Capulin's geology, ecology, and history.
