Sunset Crater National Monument Things to Do: 35 reviews and 95 photos
This is a 1/3 mile paved path at first, and then goes down into the crater flow for a total of one mile round trip. The trail runs right through some impressive lava flows and around to foot of Sunset crater. It is an eery feeling to be right next to this lava' jagged and been laying here in this state for over 1000 years, untouched. The Sunset Crater was going to be dynamited back in 1929 for a movie set, but it got stopped and that is when they made it a park to protect the environment.
