  • If you are at Crater Lake you must do the Rim Drive. Most of the scenic attractions can be seen from it and there is car parking to stop and enjoy the sights. 
  • This is probably the best way to take in the view of the lake - traffic isn't too busy (or it wasn't when we were there) and there are plenty of places to stop and take in the awesome view. 
  • do it first with the Trolley to learn what to look for and the history and animals. The driver also gets to appreciate it. Then do it yourself and take your time and go for a hike/walk.
