Fun little hike on an interesting volcano:

The hike start fairly steep until the top while on the rim it's pretty easy so you have to watch your footing.

Menan butte is also called R mountain because a giant R is painted on the NE side of the volcano. I also went off track in this area to grab a geocache.

TO TRAILHEAD: From Menan, Turn on N 3600 E a stay on the road until you reach the parking lot which will be on the right.
