Hike Ancient Lava Trails At Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument In Arizona

Volcanoes aren’t limited to Hawaii—in fact, we have about 600 of them right here in Arizona (all extinct, however). Among them is Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument, a nearly millennium-old cinder cone that towers over 8,000 feet high. Park visitors can hike ancient lava flow trails, piecing together the beautifully destructive history of this incredible place.
