Crater Lake Trail

Crater Lake Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This popular trail climbs steadily to alpine Crater Lake, nestled in the base of North Twilight Peak.

Hikers enjoy top-of-the-world views along the trail, interspersed with passages through wild?ower meadows and dense spruce-?r forest. Fishing at the forest-edged lake or climbing above timberline to a saddle between peaks highlights this one-or two day trip."
