We took the front of the cone the first time we went because we didn’t realize there was a trail that winds behind the back-side. It was not an easy climb up the front, very loose, deep lava gravel and it gets steep at the top. The trail on the back side is nice until the very top, it got difficult for our kiddos and the people who didn’t like heights. Loose dirt and rocks and a little steep but there is an amazing panoramic view at the top.

Good easy hike. Bring a pole, lots of loose stuff

fun hike, but at less than a mile in each direction, it definitely does not warrant a 'hard' rating.

It'll make you sweat for sure but the view is worth it. Plus climbing a volcano is cool too.

The trail starts on the north side gradually climbing as it circles around the east side to ridge on the south side. Then climbs steeply to the top where there are great views of Snow Canyon State Park.

Writing this from atop Cinder Cone. Steep incline to the top. Not much to the trail but great views. I can also say I have now climbed a volcano!
