Fantastic hike. A little challenging, but great.

Well maintained trail in the heart of PDX. I prefer early as the trail is open at 5 AM. Nice and quiet then.

Nice, quick hike that offers amazing views of both the entire lake and Wizard Island.

Earlier posts and the USFS website are not accurate! The trail is open, clear and in great shape. Not a single tree was across the path. The Blanket Fire did a lot of damage in the area, including right around the springs, but, overall, the area is still beautiful. The area nearest the river escaped much damage, probably due to the moisture, and the rest of the area is a fascinating blend of healthy, blighted and burnt forest. Yellow Monkey Flower and Fire Weed were both in b full bloom along the river and on all the logs in the river. Hummingbirds were everywhere, and a lot of Dippers were in the water. And to top if all off, seeing such a famous and mighty river start almost immediately after coming out of the hillside was both humbling and impactful. The hike is fairly short, fairly easy and well worth the trip to get there.

1.5 hrs (1 hr up and 30 mins down) with 11 and 15 yr olds. Great views of the lake. Crowded but 4 stars due to smoke from wild fires. We got the views and we could see all the way across but not the deep blue color! Keep an eye on the crater webcam if you are not staying at the lodge. Dry and steep going up and starts at 7k ft so take water. And have lunch at the lodge after, while you wait for your table have a drink in a rocking chair on the patio overlooking the lake.

Love this trail, perfect hiking place for a hot day.

Love this hike, gives great views of the basin, crater lake, wizard island & phantom ship. It is short but it is all uphill. I went to watch the sunset on Garfield & I passed only two people who were headed down while I was going up

Enjoyed this hike. Peaceful and beautiful

Nicely maintained trail. Beautiful view at the top.

Beautiful trail with spectacular views once you reach the peak. Parking lot was full with picnic gatherings, but we saw no one on the trail the entire time. Mosquitoes are still around though, so bring your spray.

awesome hike, best to do in the early am. we started at 630, no one was on the trail. far busier after 8.

Did this trail early this morning (8/3) with spectacular weather and minimal crowds until the descent. I had the peak to myself for upwards of 45 minutes. I must stress the extreme crowds toward early afternoon-mid day. The hike is entirely uphill until you reach the peak, but nothing a moderately in shape person couldn’t do. Go early and enjoy!

Really great for a city trail. Good for trail running.

Hiked this trail July 24, 2018. Easy walk to the falls. Lots of wildflowers and butterflies.

The perfect hike... highest point in CLNP, Mt. Scott is a mostly open hike around the right hand side of the cone, with a nice ridge along the top and great views in all directions. Awesome spot to view Crater Lake and surrounding peaks, this 5 miler offers about a 1300 ft. elevation gain and a gradual climb most of the way. One of my favorites, don't miss it. Know that most years, the trail doesn't open until July due to snows, but the lack of snow this year left it wide open. Enjoy!

Short and easy hike to the Plaikni Falls. Tons of mosquitos on the trail, beware!

Nice short hike with great views of the Lake as well as Wizard Island. Some snow left but the top of the hike is accessible. High traffic.

Another cool lookout/peak to hike up to. Views are incredible. Trail is relatively easy, just all uphill!

Short and sweet. Well maintained, fairly easy uphill trail. Lookout is locked up and in rough shape but it's definitely worth the quick trip.

had a great time on this trail, pretty nice pitch on the way up definitely broke a sweat, views are stunning most of the way up if not all the way up to and then incredible at the top, you can see all of Crater Lake and really see where the volcano cave Den, way back down is fun, I Trail ran some of the way down so if you're into that you can get a little bit of that in, and if you're in better shape than I am you could probably trail run up too

Short hike but amazing view :)

Good city hike. Wanted to stay close to city and get a good hike in, and this did the trick! The views from Pitock Mansion were great as well!

The hike to the falls is not scenic. Trail surface is unobstructed. The variety of flowers at the falls was nice.

Excellent hike with fantastic views. My favorite so far.

Great hike with spectacular view at the end. Just a little too popular for my tastes though, but that's probably what I get for hiking it on a Saturday of a holiday weekend.

Surprising trail with a nice reward at the end. Trail is mostly flat with a slight incline at the falls. We hiked between 2-3PM when the sun is on the falls and makes better pictures. The wildflowers were awesome along with hundreds of butterflies. Don't miss this one at Crater Lake NP.

About a mile in the trail is closed due to the most recent fire. Not too much shade from tree cover, but the river/creek is very beautiful. Crystal clear water & nice flowing sound.
