This is a good dog-friendly hike outside Zion National Park. It's across the road from the Valley Academy in Hurricane; if you put that into your GPS, you'll get close. There are two cinder cones, East and West. The East one starts right next to some sort of gravel pit, and the West one is off of a little pull-out just a couple tenths of a mile to the west. The views are okay, but not spectacular. You can do one or both cones. We went near dusk, and the sun set very quickly. We did not see anyone else on the trail.

As laid out this is an interesting loop trail. It's possible to make it more strenuous by not taking a hard left at the first turn and go straight up the knoll.
