Unfortunately our trolley tour was canceled due to wildfires. Understandable, but still disappointing. We asked the park ranger, on entry, about the trolley and he never mentioned the cancellation. However we totally understood the need to keep people safe, and not charge unnecessarily.

The trolley does not take winding or bumpy roads. Very gentle curves around the crater.
