Old Pass Road Professional Reviews and Guides
"Whether you’re looking for a handicapped-accessible hike with a wilder feel than you’d get on any of the town and county’s pathways or a hike where you don’t need to constantly watch the ground in front of you, look no further than hiking Old Pass Road to the snowmelt-fed Crater Lake.
There is the option to return to the trailhead via a gentle singletrack trail through aspen and coniferous forest, or you can retrace your route along the road that, between 1913 and 1969, was the main road over Teton Pass.
The hike up Old Pass Road to Crater Lake is a popular dog walk. While there isn’t any water along the road, Crater Lake is a wonderful canine swimming hole. The views from Old Pass Road are not spectacular, but it is a nice, easy place to walk in the outdoors, and maybe to see a moose."
