This is a lovely trail. We camped in site F11 and had the trail at our backdoor. We hiked the loop after dinner on our first night. Lots of pretty flowers to see here.

Meh. Tons of mosquitoes and more than any hike I’ve ever been on. Decent 1-2 miler otherwise.

We did this early in the morning; it was nice to enjoy a quiet morning hike. We were the only ones on the trail. Pretty stream. Definitely recommend if you’re camping in loop E - easy access. Mosquitoes.

Very nice way to start a long weekend in Crater Lake NP. Easy, walking access from Mazama Campground and the trail wasn't too crowded during midday on a weekday. Great canyon scenery and views of pinnacles, striations, and other "geological stuff." The trail often meanders along creekside. Wildflowers abound. Wonderfully welcoming trail.

Nice morning hike when staying within Mazama Camp.

This is a very easy trail and is worth every step. The "moderate" rating comes from the very short, moderately steep climb at the end of the hike (I think it's overrated). The lower trail runs steadily alongside a quietly babbling creek which restores some of the inner peace which is lost at Rim Village. Saw only one other hiker on the trail and actually traversed the lower trail from north to south, then reversed course south to north before climbing back up to the upper trail (recommended). Very relaxing.

Hiked this trail while camping at Mazama. What a beautiful hike down into this amazing canyon. The strong smell of evergreens and fresh air is something I will always remember. Stop and dip your toes in the freezing creek in the summer months.

We stopped once we hit snow. (In late June) it was slippery in a couple of places, more than what a nervous person might handle.

Beautiful trail and so conveniently accessible from the Mazama Campground. Loved the descent into the canyon, and what a neat creek-side trail.

Beautiful trail taking you down to the creek in the heart of the canyon! I love trails that show you a different side of a place you think you know, and this one was quite exciting. Be aware that it isn't accessible all year- we found few footprints ahead of us in the snow (in June), and I suspect that a few days earlier it would not have been passable.

This hike takes you down the canyon that Annie Creek creates and offers spectacular views of the creek, wildlife and geographical features unique to Crater Lake. The hike down into the canyon and back up are quite steep and slippery if it has been raining so watch your step. The easiest way to find the trail is to walk to the end of campground "C" and find the trail there. This is a heavily used trail and we ran into a few other people, even in the rain.
