Syllabus
North Crater Trail is a 1.9 mile one way hike with 390 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 65 miles north of Burley Idaho. The trailhead is car accessible. May and September are the best months to enjoy this hike.


Overview: The trail traverses North Crater and drops into the crater mouth, the vent for the North Crater flow. The northwest flank of North Crater is missing. The trail continues to the rim of Big Craters before descending to the Spatter Cones. If you don't have a shuttle car and don't want to hike out and back the whole length of the trail, take a 0.5 mi one way hike from Spatter Cones area to crater's rim.
