Description

One of the most iconic spots in Craters of the Moon, the Big Craters seldom fail to amaze. Runners can run along the rim of the crater and admire the craters from above, alongside views of the Silent Cone and the surrounding landscape!

Note: Running inside the crater is prohibited; please stay on the main trail!

Short Run: The Big Craters are along the North Crater Trail. They are only a short run from the southern parking lot for those short on time, or they can be reached from the north end of the trail as well for those looking for a longer adventure.
