  • This one is only 3.6 miles but is straight up then straight down. A nice little workout with tremendous views well worth the hike. Only takes about 2 hours with a nice rest at the top.  more »

  • If you are not afraid of a little workout go up here, it's excellent.
  • Good hike with a close view of Crater Lake from the top, come early for parking.
  • I don't hike often (I only go on family trips) and am scared of heights, but kept chugging along on this accessible trail. It was glorious - stellar views - and had a nice flat area at the top to take pictures, relax, and recuperate.
  • Well kept trail and worth the time. A much better view of Crater lake.
  • Really gorgeous hike with incredible views around every corner. Approximately 7900 ft elevation over several switchbacks. Took about 90 min with plenty of stops for pictures. Also it's directly behind the Lodge, parking and several lookouts.
