What a nice hidden gem - Tanya and I really enjoyed this area. It was pretty warm on Saturday, even up this high and with cloud cover, but we followed the nice trail into the mountainside, which just looks other-wordly. We wanted to see what some of the features looked like from above, so we backtracked out of the crater and hiked through a nice p-j forest up the west side of the mountain. Definitely provided a unique angle looking down in from the top of the mountain. Nice ponderosa forest up there. A must-see for folks driving to and from the Canyon who have the time. Lots of traffic on the trail
