Driving Directions to Campground:
From Flagstaff, take I-40 to exit 201. Turn left and go toward Page (Highway 89). Go north on 89 approximately 13 miles to the entrance of Sunset Crater National Monument.

Cinders OHV Volcano Bowl Trail Ride Details:

  • Note that the campground is car accessible (paved roads), the following applies only to the optional Saturday trail ride...
  • We rate The Cinders OHV area 4x4 Moderate. Stock high-clearance 4x4s are generally fine on the trails. Aggressive tread tires (such as All-terrain or Mud Terrain) are recommended. A 4x4 with *low range* is required. A solid frame-mounted tow point is required (trailer hitch, factory tow hooks, etc.). Airing down is required (if you don't have a compressor to air back up with, many of us do and will lend you some air!).
  • We will be traveling on a paved road from camp to the Cinders OHV and back so vehicles must be street-legal/licensed or towed.
  • CB Channel: 4 or Ham Frequency: 146.460 - (it's ok if you don't have either for this run)
  • Be sure to you are at the campground before 9AM on Saturday if you're coming on the trail ride... and don't forget to pack a lunch & plenty of water!
