Syllabus
Inferno Cone is a 0.4 mile round trip hike with 170 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 64 miles north of Burley Idaho. September and June are the best months to enjoy this hike.


Overview: The trail to the top of Inferno Cone is steep, but rewards you with panoramic views. From the top of the cone you can see cinder cones lined up along the Great Rift. Big Cinder Butte, towering above the lava plain to the south, is one of the world's largest basaltic cinder cones. On clear days you may see the Teton Range, 100 miles to the east. (NPS)
