Nice trail in the forest, but definitely steep if you're headed up to the lake.

This trail is all about the carving, and the history of it. Marvelous

Excellent trail to enjoy Crater Lake. We hiked up on New Years Eve, couldn’t make it to the peak because the snow cover was to deep along the ridge. Well worth the views half way up though. Road was open all the way to the village. Micro-spikes or snow shoes are recommended.

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

I did this hike today. We didn’t have snowshoes and couldn’t go further than a mile. The view of Wizard island and Crater lake was amazing from the view points. You may check the avalanche hazard before doing this hike. You can rent snowshoes from Rim village cafe for 20$.

This is an extremely easy and pretty short trail. It’s more of a walk but the waterfall is beautiful!

This was a pretty easy hike for a spectacular view. It’s a must when visiting crater lake. I saw a lot of people bring their dogs... which definitely isn’t cool. They have no dog rules for a reason— to preserve plants and habitats in and around the trail. Please respect these rules!

This trail gives you alright views of the canyon although i wish there was an easier way to get a good view of the canyon. Obviously its great that this is a loop. good trail to stop by on your way out of Crater Lake.

Great trail if you want to some good views of crater lake. Well kept as well, usually doesn't melt out until June, sometimes not even until July.

Went last year, early July. Easy trail—expect lots of foot traffic. Beautiful wildflowers. Breeding grounds for butterflies. Park Ranger had asked that we watch our footing so as to not harm them. Gorgeous “Blues”. Found some reviews/info here: http://hipsterbirders.blogspot.com/2015/11/butterflies-of-crater-lake-national-park.html?m=1

Memorable experience. Went last year, early July. Not a ton of shade on trail, and can get pretty hot. Wear sunscreen, hat, etc. Place can be pretty packed. Not as many people on the trails. Recommend for your viewing pleasure, 10/10.

Small snowy patches, but nothing impeding trail use. It was a beautiful day out there today!

the NPS website says dogs are allowed on this trail.

Hiked on Oct 20th. Snow covered, some post-holing. Hiked the whole way with micro spikes, poles would have been helpful. Dang, what a gorgeous trail in the snow!

Great trail, shaded in some parts but majority of it will be in the open. You will find the occasional tree to get some shade and rest. Hike is challenging but not crazy difficult. The view at the top is spectacular but it is very crowded and there is no place to really enjoy the view or grab a quick lunch with the crater lake view. Be sure to go on a moderately sunny day!

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.

Went for sunrise and we were the first ones on the trail. Not really much snow. Spectacular.

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.
