Perhaps the iconic hike and summit in Craters of the Moon National Monument, the 6,181' Inferno Cone gives panoramic views of the surrounding desolate landscape including views of Big Cinder Butte, Silent Cone, the Devil's Orchard and of the numerous lava flows.

To reach the parking lot at the Inferno Cone Trailhead enter the Craters of the Moon National Monument at the main entrance on the north side of the park off US Highway 26 and go approximately 1.5 miles on the 17 miles Loop Road. 

There will be clear signage indicating the parking lot at the base of the Cone.

From there, take the obvious use trail .5 miles to the summit.

Note: in the winter there may not be someone manning the park gate, but you can purchase a park entrance ticket from the station on the side of the road.
