Description: The Cinder Knoll Loop Trail is the main trail to reach the top of one of two cinder cones in the area. Two additional trails serve as connectors to reach this trail. Start by taking 600 North Trail east for .4 miles. As the old road bed turns north, it becomes West Cinder Knoll Trail. Turn left at 0.3 miles and follow the Cinder Knoll Loop Trail (old road bed) around the west cinder knoll. After circumnavigating the cinder knoll, return to the trailhead following the same route.
 
This trail offers striking vistas of the surrounding farm lands and red sandstone formations.
