Craters of the Moon is a vast ocean of lava flows with scattered islands of cinder cones and sagebrush. Explore this unique landscape via the loop drive, stop at the visitor center, or hike to caves and craters.
The paved, 7-mile Loop Road connects all of the park’s major attractions. Most visitors drive from parking lot to parking lot, but the road is relatively flat and ideal for bicycling. All major sites include short- to medium-length trails, two of which are wheelchair-accessible.
