My recording ended before I actually completed the drive, but this was a beautiful, serene slice of Oregon wilderness. There were a couple of points with steep climbs, so 4x4 is my recommendation, especially in the wet season (I completed this in my ‘05 Ford Explorer). The road was rough for much of the drive, too, but I don’t recall many potholes, so you can probably get away without needing significant clearance.

Even with tire chains I barely made it to the trailhead. A large portion of the “trail” is on the (snow covered) road, not too exciting but the view at the top is Great, even thou it was pretty overcast day for me.

4 of us took 9 days and leisurely rode our dual sport motorbikes from north to south (starting at home in Bend) on this route in September 2018. We camped some, stayed in hotels some. Great memories -- don't forget to eat at Manly's Tavern when you pop out there in Crescent. GREAT place.

Breath taking trail. This is an official alternate for the PCT so we had to do it. Fantastic awe inspiring views. We did this in September 2019 on Friday morning so it wasn’t too crowded. Camped in the national park campground the night before then started on the rim trail the next morning. Ended the day at Grouse Hill campsite

Top of lookout is closed, gated and locked in winter as well as the road to the lookout. Monday 10/28/19 15.10 miles with 3325ft elevation gain before sunrise to sunset. Hiked to Flag Point Lookout Tower Via High Prarie TH; smelly vaulted toilet at parking area, picnic area, room for 5 cars max, must have a NW Forrest Pass or America the beautiful pass or pay for a day pass in advance, Camp spots and extra parking nearby, if following Google maps it will take you to the wrong location. High prarie trail (lots of snow at higher elevations a foot maybe more, less in some areas, before lookout trail lots of foot traffic in snow, trail is in great condition. Wide easy trail). To Lookout Mountain (lots of snow to Lookout Mountain, patchy snow on top lookout mountain, trail is maybe 2.5 miles round trip. Easy trail if just going to lookout mountain). To Divide Trail #458 (steep, narrow, snowy, icy and rocky trail. I used my microspikes for this section just to be on the safe side. The trail is to your left coming down halfway from Lookout Mountain, to your right if going up. Sign for trail has been damaged. Squeaky trees. Overgrown in areas.). To Flag Point Road (snowy for the most part, would recommend 4x4 vehicles as the terrain is rocky as well with ruts if driving up that road.). To Flag Point Lookout (everything was closed up for the winter, but in the summer months it is open and there is a ranger on sight to show people around. You cannot go to the very top of lookout it is gated and locked. Vaulted bathroom is locked in winter as well as the gate at end of Flag Point Road is closed.). To Badger Creek Cutoff trail #477... Decided to do this one mid hike as I did not want to do divide in the afternoon. (Follow the most obvious path. My Gaia app said that there was a continuous trail after the badger creek sign down a ways but I could not find the route in all the big blow downs. Lots of big blow downs in this area, can easily loose your path if you don't have a map of the area. Steep, rocky, obstacles on trail, some ice and snow patches. Squeaky trees. Some narrow marshy areas. Overgrown in areas.) To Badger Creek Trail #479 (lots of big blow downs, squeaky trees. One log crossing creek, the other two have bridges. A camp area by creek? Other than that pretty mellow low elevation hike. Some snow patches. Overgrown in areas.). To Gumjuwac trail #480 (make sure you have a map, easy to loose trail. Steep, rock, narrow, icy and snowy in some areas. Creek crossings. Lots of big blow downs on trail. Camp spot close to FR 3550 on trail before the final push to the road next to a small creek. Overgrown in areas.). To Forrest Road 3550. Made a right when I went on the road. A sharp right puts you on the high Prarie loop trail. ( The road has several big blow downs. Icy and snowy parts. Icy cattle grade. Some good view camp spots. Rocky in areas. Road is steep, but a gradual climb and takes you right to High Prarie TH. Also great views of the area.). Hiked Solo. First car in the High Prarie TH when I arrived at 4:45am and only car in the lot when I got back to the TH at 5:30pm. Didn't see anyone on the trails, nor on the roads to trails.

We were here today and loved it! The road is very rocky about halfway up. There was a light dusting of snow on the trail, but it was not slippery. The view at the top is amazing. The fire lookout is boarded up for the season, but you can walk around the wrap-around deck for some crazy beautiful panoramic views!

The road in is a motha!

Paved path through otherworldly lava flow. Some Elevation, beautiful view at the top.

Pretty short little hike. Cool views and information stations along the way. Amazing history.

Almost nothing better. I highly recommend timing your visit near sunrise or sunset. The star views out here can legitimately change a person.

Beautiful drive with absolutely breathtaking views. Be sure to stop for a few hikes as you make your way around the loop.

Join a Ranger guided hike. It's worth it! Very impressive and easy hike for young (3yo) & even for grand parents.

My hubby and I did this yesterday! We attempted this on Saturday but it was already 3:30pm (it was extremely crowded) so we decided to try our luck on Sunday morning. We got to the south entrance on Sunday around 8:30am and there were only 2 cars ahead of us. The ranger will give you a clear map of the rim drive. There are roads still closed and some snow in a few areas. We drove most of it and only hiked up for the views. This lake is gorgeous! The bluest lake I’ve ever seen! It’s definitely worth the trip! PS...my recording is off because I forgot to start it!

This walk is no longer available & should be removed

We went in late June and the East Rim Drive was closed still. Otherwise it was a beautiful drive around the lake! Would definitely come back!

The trail itself is easy but if it’s warm out bring a hat and sunscreen—the lava rocks can really make it feel warmer than the air temp!

Beautiful and very remote. Definitely carry kitty repellant. Went in January, snow up to my hip. Views were incredible.

I wouldn’t say this was moderate but it was definitely neat to see the lava flow very different perspective and landscape

excellent, go at begin of season or end of season and go early!

drive but walking around the lake is very nice even in winter

Very exposed, bring sunscreen and water. The paved trails are fairly easy but could be difficult for those who don’t walk/hike often.
