The Craters of the Moon (COM) geothermal walkway wanders through a weird, other-worldy, landscape featuring bubbling craters and steaming vents. This low-key geothermal attraction is run by a charitable trust. A small admissions fee is charged.

MAIN TRACK:  45 minute loop walk
                            An easy grade suitable for most people of all ages
                            Track surface is a mixture of fine gravel and wooden boardwalks
                            Suitable for assisted-wheelchair access

TOP TRACK:     Add 20 minutes to walk to the viewpoint (upper lookout)
                            It's a moderate walk with numerous steps
                            The view makes it well worth the effort!
