From Interstate 40/Purple Heart Trail, take exit 201 (US 89 N to Page), turn north on Country Club Drive, then turn right (northeast) onto Route 89 for about 8 miles. From US-89, turn right (east) onto the unpaved Forest Service Rd 776, and continue about 1.5 miles to the Cinder Hills Off-Highway Vehicle Area. Turn right and head south-southwest through this area about half a mile to reach the crater field.Forest Service Rd 776 may be closed seasonally or due to poor conditions, and may only accessible by 4-wheel-drive vehicles in other conditions. Although all motor vehicles are technically permitted in the Cinder Hills OHV area, vehicles other than ATV's or high-clearance 4-wheel-drive vehicles may get stuck. Road conditions and closures, detailed maps including the boundaries of the Cinder Hills OHV area, fire danger level, and other information is available on the Coconino National Forest website.
