Crater Lake lies in the caldera of Mount Mazama formed 7,700 years ago after an eruption. It is the deepest lake in the United States and is known for its blue color and water clarity. There are two islands in the lake, and, with no inlets or outlets, all water comes through precipitation.

Cool trail with lots of water features and rock and wood bridges. Be ready to get your feet a little wet! Very easy, good for children and the elderly. Barefoot friendly!

Well maintained trail that leads down to the lake access point. Has a good jumping rock and the water is crystal clear and great for swimming. Super barefoot friendly!

Easy walk with beautiful views!

A must-do hike in Crater Lake Nat'l Park! Prepare to move a little slower than usual due to the elevation, but slow and steady and should be no problem. Hiked to the top of Mt Scott in July 2016 around the Independence Day holiday, and it was still cold up at the top even in the summer (bring gloves, jacket and hat if you plan to hang out at the top). Snow could still be seen in spots throughout the park but wasn't an issue on the trail. Trail is well groomed, and the top offers a panoramic view that you won't be able to get anywhere else in the park. Afterwards, and not too far away, is Umpqua Hot Springs, if you're up for a soak in a natural hot spring. Beware - Issues this Summer (2017) with wildfires, so do your research before going.
