There’s still a month or so left to Hike Oregon.  Once the snow starts falling, bring out the XX Skis and snowshoes!  We invite you to Take a Hike near Crater Lake ~ one of Oregon’s Seven Wonders

Wizard Island:  To begin, check the park tour boat schedule and buy a ticket.  Hike down the rim on the trail to Cleetwood Cove then ride the boat to Wizard Island.  Hike to the 6,940-foot top of the island, which got its name for its resemblance to a wizard’s hat. Then ride the boat back to Cleetwood Cove and hike the steepest part of the outing back to your car.

Mount Scott:  The high point inside the park, is Oregon’s 10th highest mountain at 8,929 feet. It’s a relatively easy five-mile round trip hike, July to early October.

Godfrey Glen: An easy 1 mile loop through old growth hemlock and fir

Discovery Point: A meandering rim trail

Garfield Peak: This hike might leave you a bit breathless, the summit elevation being 8,054′. There are ample places to stop along the way, to rest and take in the view.

Annie Creek Canyon Trail: along the rim and into the surrounding forest and a unique geological feature

Boundary Spring: In the northwest part of the park, hike the short trail to see the headwaters of the Rogue River gush out of the ground.
