Short well-maintained trail that leads to the fire lookout on top. Trail is uphill, but plenty of spots to take a break if needed. Well worth the views at the top.

Hiked this trail in June 2017. Beautiful views. Bees were annoying.

My family and I did this trail when we were camping at Crater Lake. The views were spectacular.

Nice hoodoos.... Reminds me a little bit of Bryce Canyon. Very short level little trail.

Nice little trail to the falls with no one around. I did it fairly early in the morning. When I got to the falls I saw a Rock Chuck or also known as a Marmot by the falls. That was interesting since I've only seen a few and it was the first my dog has seen.

For some reason I didn't get a track on this one. Nice little trail with no wildflowers this time of the year. I did it late in the day with not a single person on the trail.

Simple and easy with awesome views of a few pinnacles. Reminds me of a tiny version of Bryce Canyon. The trail goes on further with some signage removed. I'll have to find out to where?

Hard to locate but a pleasure to hike. Interesting little creek trail on the bottom that Brook, my lab, enjoyed thoroughly. Many of the hikes I did over 2 days in this area reminded me of Zion.

Nice easy walk to view some interesting rock formations. It's only necessary to walk a short distance to view the best formations. We walked to the park boundary where the old sign used to be, but there really aren't any better views of the pinnacles to be had by walking this far.

Not crowded. No mosquitoes today, but also no wildflowers. A bit too late in the season, I guess. Easy walk along a well established trail. Slight incline the last 1/4 mile, but nothing tough.

I would rate as moderate, just because of the elevation change near the top. Great views all around today. The smoke from nearby fires wasn't too bad today. Beautiful area.

Nice little kike with a view of some of the pinnacles. It is NOT ADA compliant at this time (Per sign at trailhead). Most of the trail is 2-3 inches deep in dust. I hate to think what it will be like with the first rains. National Park Service is actively laying down gravel to make it ADA compliant.

great view. you can see the whole Cascades and Siskyous (if it wasn't for the smoke from the California fires) The National Park Service rates it as moderate to strenuous. possibly because of the elevation (8,013 ft) Even so, I had less problems with the thin air than I did 40+ years ago at the same elevation on Mt. Fuji. (Who says youth can handle it better than oldsters?)

Very easy and short hike up for some nice views of the lake. Can get crowded so go earlier in the day.

Great SUPER easy trail (it’s ada accessible too!) with amazing views of the canyon!

Too many folks.

Crazy rock formations abound. Easy hike.

Beautiful easy and short

Found the trail hard to locate- but nice enough.

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

Quick hike through the trees offering some nice views into the valley below. Lots of ground squirrels!

Easy hike with lots of water features. Went counterclockwise from the trail head. No booklets were left to purchase as of 8/5.
Not too crowded but it could have been because the wildfire smoke was rolling in. Lots of plants, streams and stepping stones. Quite a few bees.

Super easy hike, and beautiful there, but not sure if it’s worth the drive

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

Nice trail. Liked going counter clockwise. Crossing several small streams covered with wild flowers. Moving water and wildflowers make a wonderful time.
Donated a dollar and kept the wildflower booklet offered at the trail head.

Great views of the pinnacles! Not to be missed!

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

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.
