Suggestions for your visit
This unusual landscape is worthy of exploration. The trail to the bottom of Ubehebe Crater is a fun romp through loose rubble. However, the laborious climb out can be exhausting. A gentler 0.5-mile trail can be followed along the rim of Ubehebe to Little Hebe Crater. Although older than Ubehebe, Little Hebe maintains a very distinctive form. After exploring Little Hebe, it's possible to continue a loop walk for another mile around the rim of Ubehebe.
