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.

Part of National Monument of Petroglyph park. Tails is quite easy, add some length to circle another volcano, No petroglyphs here. A good view over town.

A two mile trail takes you around the volcanoes (which errupted 15,000 years ago. Hight points, they are the place that Mother Earth meets Father Sky. Great 200 square mile views of the Sandias, Rio Grande and west to Mt. Taylor. Important places to the Pueblo People, as well as other Native People such as the Dine and Apache. Worth the visit.

Park your vehicle, take a walk. The views of town are very nice, if looking down at a city is your thing. I would suggest that you wear some footgear that is more substantial than sandals.

This is a great place to come to hike. You can take short hikes or go the distance and climb to the top of different volcano tops. I come whenever I am in town. The best time to come is in the early morning. It is nice and cool. I have seen a few snakes while hiking it was never a problem.
