Does have a few rough steep spots but even my 5 and 3 year old were able to make it to the top with a little bit of help on the slippery areas. They loved being in the volcano and the view is great from the top.

Decent trail for hiking. Somewhat of a rough trail as you come to the top. I actually did some trail running on this trail. Great for hill training. Awesome views of Snow Canyon.

Cool hike, it is an old volcano. Surrounded by a large lava field for exploring also. I had a really good time on this hike as it is very unique and reminded me of Hawaii. Watch out! It is very steep with lots of loose rock I sled down in a couple of spots.

This trail definitely deserves the moderate rating due to the loose rock that is difficult to climb up and down through. It can be quite slippery, even in a good pair of hiking shoes.

Very fun and a beautiful view of snow canyon from the top.

There are spots in the trail that are obviously shortcuts, and have rocks placed at the bottom to prevent people from using them. To prevent further erosion in that area, please stay on the path and let the vegetation take over and restore that space again.

It’s cool because you’re hiking a volcano. It’s an easy trail to follow and offers a wonderful view of Snow Canyon and other Cinder Cones. Walking around the crater and going into the center is a neat experience. Worth doing again. Not the longest trail; however when if you’re short on time it’s perfect.

You can wind your way up the back of the volcano and then walk around the crater itself at the top. And you can see other cinder cones from the top! I thought it was cool

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.

This is not dog friendly. The sign says no dogs

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!
