Upper Crater Meadow Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Moderate trails lead through wonderfully varied scenery, including a pair of cinder cones, the Red Cones. The eastern Sierra has many fascinating volcanic features like the Red Cones, though it’s been hundreds of years since there’s been a volcanic event, other than an occasional tremor, in this area. The trailheads are only a few miles apart, so this is an easy shuttle to set up."
