From US-20 about 18 miles west of Arco, turn left/south into the main entrance for Craters of the Moon National Monument. Follow the loop road and then a short side road to the Spatter Cones Trailhead parking area.


A paved hiking path quickly leads to the rocky summit area. A metal rail (and signage) prohibits climbing to the top of the rocky outcrop.
