You and your dog will enjoy this shady hike to a highly unusual geological feature, the heart of a cinder cone estimated to be about three quarters of a million years old. Cinder cones are common in this region, but this one has crumbled and eroded in a way that makes the mountain look as though a cross section has been scooped away. The trail ends at the base of this cone, and you can explore part of the area inside this ancient volcano.
