Crater Lake Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This hike offers delightful wildflowers, a scenic lake, and gorgeous mountain views. It’s a beautiful day hike or a nice overnight stay; the choice is up to you.
Begin by hiking up the moderate slope via the Crater Lake Trail.There’s a wonderful view back to Andrews Lake and beyond. You’ll level off (at least for a while) after 1.2 miles. The trail parallels a meadow and then drops some, heading through the trees, then back out into the open at 1.5 miles. Cross another meadow, then ford a creek at 1.7 miles. From here to the wilderness boundary, it’s a moderate, sometimes steep, climb."
