Volcano Park officially opens at 8:30 am through dusk--we arrived at 6:30 am in order to hike as the sun came up and encountered one individual running. Bring water with you and wear layers. There are some rest stops where you can sit. The volcanos, particularly the cones are sacred to Native American culture as places where human beings emerged to populate the Earth and are not open to hikers. Be respectful. The morning views are beautiful as the sun rises over the Sandias in the East. The park is directly across the street from the Double Eagle II Airport, so you will also observe small planes taking off and landing. There is a breakfast and lunch cafe at the airport on the second floor as well--very simple food so don't envision remarkable menus! There are generally two breakfast and two lunch choices, sodas and hot coffee. There are bathrooms at the park, fancier bathrooms at the airport! The Visitor's Center for Volcano Park and the Petroglyph National Monument is located at Unser and Western Trails on the Eastern side of the volcanoes.
