A difficult hike up to the sandy summit of Belknap Crater, a cinder cone surrounded by the great expanses of the Belknap Lava Bed.

The hike is marked difficult due to course, rough lava, and steep and sandy grades.

The last part of the hike, past the lava flow, is extremely sandy, slippery, and steep! Your progress will be slow, but it never gets too sketchy. The path is for the most part, easy to follow. The trail leading away from the Pacific Crest Trail is not marked. It is seen to your left immediately after you exit the lava bed (beyond the Little Belknap Crater Trail junction).
