Note: This trail does not climb the volcano, which is closed to hiking.
Did You Know?
Hiking trails to the top of Sunset Crater Volcano were closed in 1973, because extensive erosion was damaging the cinder cone. Although tons of cinders were shoveled into the ruts, trail routes are still visible today.
