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.

Great hike that included 360 degree views of the whole Crater Lake area. Sign at trailhead say 2.5miles to the top. The first half mile has a few spots with snow but besides that the rest of the trail is snow free. Not too hard of a hike for someone in decent shape but it's not easy for the average tourist. There is a lookout structure at the top which was closed. Went up in the evening and saw a handful of other groups. Definitely recommended when visiting Crater Lake. The entire Rim Dr is now open also.

East Rim was close. There was road construction on West Rim and unpaved roads. Otherwise the drive is really fun. There are lots of viewpoints to stop and take pictures.

It was still snowy on the second half of the loop on 7/15/17! Perfect trail to stretch sore legs.
