Opportunities to explore Capulin Volcano from top to bottom are available for all ages and abilities. The Volcano Road provides vehicle access to the top, winding around the volcano with spectacular views in all directions, as well as into the crater. Hiking trails vary from the paved Crater Rim Trail at the top, to unimproved trails winding around Capulin's base.
