I’m an avid hiker/backpacker and getting to the summit of Cinder Cone was pretty brutal due to exposure, how steep it is, and how lose the rocks are on the way up. Every step you take you slide back about 1/2 the distance so it’s like climbing it twice. It’s totally worth it though and I wouldn’t hesitate to do it again when we go back to summit Mt Lassen which we decided not to do this time with how hot it was and the trail up being completely exposed.

Next month is Grand Tetons which hopefully the weather won’t be as bad.

I don't think my wife and I are up to the cinder cone hike any more yet we have been on others.  We love volcanos.

The Tetons are stunning and a joy to hike.  Have a wonderful time.
