Ascent Trip Report

Camped at Butte Lake and hiked up to the summit on the steep, treacherous trail that wraps around the cone to the top. Once atop Cinder Cone, I took the trail around the rim and down into the bottom of the volcano. Climbed out and took the trail on the south side to make a loop. Smoke in the air from several CA wildfires obscured distant views.
