You have to walk through this tunnel to get to the inside of the crater.

NEXT  
The interior of the crater has a park and a restricted government base. - We're going to climb to that peak you see ahead. An antenna at the government base. Larry poses next to the park sign. We begin our climb to the peak. You can see the trail and all the people on it. There are a lot of switchbacks.  Fences keep you from falling off the trail.
Another shot of the side of the hill.  That's Larry on the lower right at the fence. The winding trail ends and turns into this stright climb followed by 99 steps to the top. Here's the view looking back into the crater.  You can see the tunnel in the distance. We're almost to the top. Bill on the circular spiral staircase. Bill takes the final steps to the top.
