Grassy Cone

Elevation: 6,315 ft

This small, nondescript Butte sits just north of USA-93 just east of the main entrance into Craters of the Moon National Monument. ThIs small peak shelters an interesting crater on its north side and is a great place to view the volcanic terrain south of the highway.

There is a large pullout on the south side of the highway. An ascent to the summit from this point is a short but steep 0.5 mile hike through sagebrush. Please take care of this pristine environment and watch out for rattlesnakes.
