Inscription.  This silent volcano made some noise approximately 6,500 years ago when eruptions ejected cinders and pumped out lava from the crater.
Today, the shady north-facing slope of this cinder cone supports a forest of Limber pines and a few larger Douglas fir trees that provide habitat for a variety of wildlife.
Silent Cone is just one of more than 25 volcanic cones in the Craters of the Moon lava field. For a closer look, hike the North Crater Trail located along the seven mile loop.
