Geocache Description:

Unique history and great views of nearby volcanoes and cinder cones greet the visitor to this site.

Cinder Lake is abused these days by off road vehicles, but the government used this site for much different reasons in the 1960s and early 1970s. The cache site requires about a kilometer drive or hike over loose cinders, so I rated the terrain a little higher than one might expect for nearly flat and open terrain. I would not take a passenger car across this surface and I would recommend a 4x4 if you choose to drive.

To log this cache, upload a photo of you with your GPS clearly visible along with the most prominant terrain feature at the waypoint. See the sample picture of me for an idea of an acceptible photo. E-mail me at with your best guess for what this site was used for and I'll send you a URL for a webpage that will describe the area and its history.
