My family and I did this trail when we were camping at Crater Lake. The views were spectacular.

Nice hoodoos.... Reminds me a little bit of Bryce Canyon. Very short level little trail.

Nice little trail to the falls with no one around. I did it fairly early in the morning. When I got to the falls I saw a Rock Chuck or also known as a Marmot by the falls. That was interesting since I've only seen a few and it was the first my dog has seen.

For some reason I didn't get a track on this one. Nice little trail with no wildflowers this time of the year. I did it late in the day with not a single person on the trail.

Simple and easy with awesome views of a few pinnacles. Reminds me of a tiny version of Bryce Canyon. The trail goes on further with some signage removed. I'll have to find out to where?

Hard to locate but a pleasure to hike. Interesting little creek trail on the bottom that Brook, my lab, enjoyed thoroughly. Many of the hikes I did over 2 days in this area reminded me of Zion.

Nice easy walk to view some interesting rock formations. It's only necessary to walk a short distance to view the best formations. We walked to the park boundary where the old sign used to be, but there really aren't any better views of the pinnacles to be had by walking this far.

Not crowded. No mosquitoes today, but also no wildflowers. A bit too late in the season, I guess. Easy walk along a well established trail. Slight incline the last 1/4 mile, but nothing tough.

Nice little kike with a view of some of the pinnacles. It is NOT ADA compliant at this time (Per sign at trailhead). Most of the trail is 2-3 inches deep in dust. I hate to think what it will be like with the first rains. National Park Service is actively laying down gravel to make it ADA compliant.

Given this is the highest spot in which to view Crater Lake and the surrounding peaks, it’s a no brainer to put on your to-do-list! However, do keep in mind exposure here is pronounced so happy helpings of sunscreen is highly recommended—I personally had to apply SPF 50 twice and I’m not that big of a stranger to the sun.

Additionally, the hike is pretty much a constant trek uphill, so be prepared for the lovely calf burn. Also, for whatever reason, the fire lookout was swarming with buzzing bees on the day that I went.

If you can get out to the trail early in the AM, there’s a good chance you can circumvent a large amount of crowds. On the holiday weekend I went, I really didn’t run into many hikers until I was descending the trail around 11 AM.

The most beautiful views you can get in the park. Starts off flat and then incline/switchbacks start til you reach the lookout. Plan for an hour and a half up and 45 minutes down. Bring a layer for the top because it gets windy/chilly. Most of the trail is exposed so recommend plenty of water and sunscreen. You’ll break a sweat but it’s very doable.

Great SUPER easy trail (it’s ada accessible too!) with amazing views of the canyon!

Too many folks.

Crazy rock formations abound. Easy hike.

Fantastic hike. A little challenging, but great.

Quick hike through the trees offering some nice views into the valley below. Lots of ground squirrels!

Easy hike with lots of water features. Went counterclockwise from the trail head. No booklets were left to purchase as of 8/5.
Not too crowded but it could have been because the wildfire smoke was rolling in. Lots of plants, streams and stepping stones. Quite a few bees.

Super easy hike, and beautiful there, but not sure if it’s worth the drive

Hiked this trail July 24, 2018. Easy walk to the falls. Lots of wildflowers and butterflies.

Nice trail. Liked going counter clockwise. Crossing several small streams covered with wild flowers. Moving water and wildflowers make a wonderful time.
Donated a dollar and kept the wildflower booklet offered at the trail head.

The perfect hike... highest point in CLNP, Mt. Scott is a mostly open hike around the right hand side of the cone, with a nice ridge along the top and great views in all directions. Awesome spot to view Crater Lake and surrounding peaks, this 5 miler offers about a 1300 ft. elevation gain and a gradual climb most of the way. One of my favorites, don't miss it. Know that most years, the trail doesn't open until July due to snows, but the lack of snow this year left it wide open. Enjoy!

Great views of the pinnacles! Not to be missed!

Short and easy hike to the Plaikni Falls. Tons of mosquitos on the trail, beware!

Another cool lookout/peak to hike up to. Views are incredible. Trail is relatively easy, just all uphill!

had a great time on this trail, pretty nice pitch on the way up definitely broke a sweat, views are stunning most of the way up if not all the way up to and then incredible at the top, you can see all of Crater Lake and really see where the volcano cave Den, way back down is fun, I Trail ran some of the way down so if you're into that you can get a little bit of that in, and if you're in better shape than I am you could probably trail run up too

Not much to see!

Easy trail. Not necessary to go far for the best views. We went to the park boundary and saw the old stone structure that used to display the parks name. I assume this was once an access point to the park.

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.
