Want to hike into the center of a real volcano? Here you go. Beautiful during wildflower season, and a fun place to spot chuckwallas and desert iguanas (as well as rattlesnakes, so be careful!). Please avoid during summer as the black volcanic rock helps superheat the area.
Amboy Crater is an extinct cinder cone volcano that rises above a 70-square-kilometer lava field in the eastern Mojave Desert of southern California, within Mojave Trails National Monument.
Beautiful, hour-ish hike up a crater. Great views from the top. The little town of Amboy is a nearly abandoned old town with beautiful old buildings you might recognize from movies. Sometimes there are art shows in the abandoned motel.
