Please note: this trail may close seasonally, sometimes even into July. Please check with park prior to your visit. The Watchman Peak Trail in Crater Lake National Park, Oregon, is a moderately steep out and back climb to a 360 degree view on the west side above Crater Lake from a historic fire lookout. Starting from the Watchman Overlook pullout, 3.7 miles north and west of Rim Village on West Rim Drive overlooking Wizard Island, the Watchman Peak Trail starts from the south end of a paved parking area and gradually switchbacks up to The Watchman fire tower overlooking Crater Lake and panoramic views over the entire surrounding area. This key vantage point offers spectacular views of the lake and Wizard Island, especially in the afternoon. Also night hikes with a ranger are available for some awesome star gazing.

Did this one in July and it was amazing! Busy during the summer but great views!

The views are beautiful and the trail is great. The elevation however was murder for me, I live at 800' above sea leave so this may be listed as moderate, but the elevation change for me made this one strenuous.

We missed the start pint of the trail at first time parked in watchman lookout, when we parked the car at the second time, we found the trail head on the right side of the lookout. There were snow on the shallow side of the mountain and slippery at the beginning of 100 meters. The view was extremely beautiful and breathtaking. Definitely it is must do it trail in the park. I hope we could stay in the camping site next time and have more time to do hiking trail in the park.

I really enjoyed looking down on Wizard island (plus the wind died down considerable once we got above the parking lot elevation)

Great views of Crater Lake from the top! Hiked this the last week in September and the weather was windy and chilly but clear. Would definitely recommend for any Crater Lake visitor looking for a great view and moderate hike.

We hiked this the last week of September and it was beautiful! There is plenty of shade and before you know it, you're at the top! Fast hike with pretty scenery! It's rated moderate, but i would consider it easy for avid hikers. The trail is smooth, wide, and the incline is steady. A must while you're visiting Crater Lake. I believe the elevation at the top of Watchman is 8012 ft, but you're only gaining a little over 300ft on this trail.

Great little trek up to gain a bit higher view. Nice little spot at the top for photos and the lookout building is cool too, although you can’t go up on its deck.

An awesome place to get some good sunset views. If you’re visiting crater lake, then save this one for sunset.

Did this hike at the beginning of August. Pretty steep on the way up but it’s not too long of a walk. Great views from the top so it’s worth it.

It was definitely a steep-ish incline for me (I’m moderately in shape) but it was a quick hike so it was over quickly! Pretty big elevation change so the views are beautiful on the top. Took us maybe 20-30 minutes to get to the top.

Nice trail and really beautiful views of the lakes. The little lookout spots are great for picture taking. For not much elevation gain it still had a lot of people stopping for a breather. But overall short and worth the views!

Lots of sun on the trail but not too bad of a hike up. The views of the lake and surrounding mountains are awesome.
