About 23 miles north of Flagstaff, in the San Francisco Volcanic Field. An easy cruise to a classic volcano. SP Mountain is one of the most symmetric cinder cones in the world. Though the last 0.5 mile to the viewpoint is very steep, this section can be walked, or the volcano can be viewed from its base. An optional side trip takes you to the SP Lave Flow, a 5-mile long field of jagged rock that poured out of the base of SP Mountain. Family groups and others desiring a shorter ride can drive part way up the road.
