  • Wasn’t too crowded here during the late morning hours. Really enjoyed the views from this spot!
  • This loop trail have bountiful view on crater lake
  • This trail is a Top Notch trail. Amazing views of some peaks and two small but great views of Crater Lake. This trail is absolutely worth it even though it's a drive from the main entrance. It is moderately strenuous but unique in it's views and scenery.
  • One of the best spots at Crater Lake. You can snowshoe in from November to May and have this place all to yourself. If visiting during the summer, get here early or come back for the sunset.
