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.
