1. North Crater Flow Trail Marker
Inscription. Here in the path of a lava flow you can view a variety of volcanic features, now frozen in time. The trail crosses over the most recent of several successive flows that originated from the North Crater area. As you walk the path, imagine slow moving lava streaming around you as showers of cinders erupt high over the North Crater cinder cone---a scene that has been repeated many times here at Craters of the Moon. Please stay on the trail and leave everything as you find it.
 
Erected by National Park Service-United States Department of the Interior.
