Definitely worth the views at the top. The perfect cinder cone and the crater is amazing, and you can see the lava flow, San Francisco Peaks, rim of the Grand Canyon, and the Painted Desert in the distance. Trail is a bit tricky to navigate, and difficult if you aren’t used to hiking on loose cinders. Expect to slide back quite a bit for every step you take going up. Definitely wear boots that protect your ankles and pants for this.
