Too many folks.

Fantastic hike. A little challenging, but great.

Beautiful easy and short

Found the trail hard to locate- but nice enough.

Nice, quick hike that offers amazing views of both the entire lake and Wizard Island.

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.

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!

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!

Short and sweet. Well maintained, fairly easy uphill trail. Lookout is locked up and in rough shape but it's definitely worth the quick trip.

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

Short hike but amazing view :)

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.

This was the most uninteresting walk. No good views from this trail.

The hike to the falls is not scenic. Trail surface is unobstructed. The variety of flowers at the falls was nice.

Great hike with spectacular view at the end. Just a little too popular for my tastes though, but that's probably what I get for hiking it on a Saturday of a holiday weekend.

Surprising trail with a nice reward at the end. Trail is mostly flat with a slight incline at the falls. We hiked between 2-3PM when the sun is on the falls and makes better pictures. The wildflowers were awesome along with hundreds of butterflies. Don't miss this one at Crater Lake NP.

Very rewarding hike. Couldn't quite tell if I was close to the top then all of a sudden you turn a corner and see the fire lookout not far off.

Highest point in the park and definitely the best 360 view. It is challenging with lots of switchbacks. But, the views are worth it.

Very nice trail. Quite a lot of people, so we didn’t get too close to the actual waterfall. The flowers were all in full bloom and the butterflies were plentiful. It was a simple hike with a fantastic waterfall and a rushing brook as well.

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.

Unbelievably gorgeous in mid-July with rainbows of flowers and mossy springs gurgling across the stones of the path. Quick and lovely leg-stretch for adults with parking on the East Rim Road. Excellent for children (kindergarten and up?) to explore. Little girls might like to pretend fairies live by the smallest spring trickles. Mosquito-infested. Definitely not wheelchair accessible.

An explosion of wildflowers and butterflies! The walk to the falls is on a wide, flat hard-packed gravel trail appropriate for almost all ages and abilities. Even a person being pushed in a wheelchair can go all the way up to the falls. The forest is pleasant and fragrant but ordinary. Then come the falls! We were there in mid-July and the wildflowers were spectacular—over a dozen kinds covering the creek banks in profusion. A hundred (or so) tiny blue butterflies were drinking from puddles on the path and anyone who reached down soon had a butterfly or two on their fingers. The falls are lovely, too (If you have an iPhone, take a Live Photo and convert it to long exposure!). Definitely worth taking a picnic or guitar or drawing pad and spending some time at this beautiful destination. Mosquitos are abundant. No bathroom at trailhead or anywhere on the trail.

Definitely worth the effort for the views from the top! It’s a constant but not too strenuous elevation gain, and there are some pretty wildflowers and interestingly gnarled trees to look at along the trail (as well as the views!). We hiked this trail in the afternoon on 4th July and even though the parking lot was very busy we only passed a handful of other groups on the trail. There was also snow in pockets along the trail, but not on the trail itself.

A very pleasant walk through the drier forest up to the wetter areas and then the waterfall. Some moderate parts but not strenuous at all - we walked it in well less than an hour, including a good stop at the falls. Definitely recommend wearing insect repellent, as the mosquitoes are relentless. Also look out for the tiny butterflies on the ground near the stop for the waterfall at the end of the trail! Several of them had been squished which was quite sad to see.
