A steep crowded trail brings you to the water which is nice to dip into.

Bring your hiking poles! This hike is SO worth it. The hike up is steep but there are plenty of stopping points to catch a breath. Bring your swim suit! You'll want to jump in!

Fun Hike, the trip back is a bit of a challenge, if your not in shape, but doable. Worth the hike if you want to see Crater lake from a different angle. If you daring you can go for a swim, might want to get an early, could get warm mid day

Beautiful! I wore our two year old in the pack for this one's steep descent/climb. The water was beautiful and refreshing. Pace yourself for the hike up.

The best place i have been yet! Bring water, though if you are lucky take the boat ride to wizard island, they may stop and let you fill your water bottle fro. the lake. So good! Jump rock into the water, it is COLD. Hike back to the top is 65 storys, take breaks. Do this hike! A+. Beautiful. Nice footing on trail
