This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Rim Drive, Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway, Crater Lake National Park, OR

This drive is approximately 33 miles long and offers numerous pullouts, overlooks, and attractions like Phantom Ship Overlook and Watchman Overlook, allowing visitors to stop and admire the spectacular vistas of the lake and surrounding volcanic terrain. It's a popular route for sightseeing, photography, and enjoying the natural beauty of Crater Lake.

Duration: 4 hours

Stop At: Mount Scott, Crater Lake National Park, OR

The Mount Scott Trail at Crater Lake, starting near Crater Lake Lodge off East Rim Drive, spans about 2.5 miles one way, providing a moderately strenuous hike culminating in the park's highest point at 8,929 feet. Trekking through rocky terrain and switchbacks, hikers ascend steadily, rewarded by breathtaking panoramas as they near the summit. The well-marked trail reveals glimpses of the surrounding beauty before unveiling a magnificent vista from the peak—Crater Lake stretches below, Wizard Island emerges within the crystalline waters, and an expansive view of forests and mountains unfolds. Weather can shift suddenly, so readiness for variable conditions, including potential wind and cooler temperatures, especially at higher elevations, is crucial for a safe and enjoyable trek.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Plaikni Falls, Crater Lake National Park, OR 97604

Plaikni Falls, found within Crater Lake National Park, offers a peaceful and family-friendly 2-mile round trip hike from Phantom Ship Overlook. The gentle trail winds through a serene forest with occasional wildlife sightings and informative signs about local flora. Arriving at the falls reveals a tranquil oasis—a graceful waterfall cascades down a mossy cliff. This makes it a serene gem in the park's landscape.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Garfield Peak, Crater Lake National Park, OR

Garfield Peak is a prominent summit within Crater Lake National Park, offering one of the most stunning viewpoints of Crater Lake. The trailhead begins near Crater Lake Lodge, and the hike is around 3.4 miles round trip, considered moderately strenuous due to its steep elevation gain. As hikers ascend, they navigate through switchbacks and rocky terrain, but the reward is the breathtaking panorama from the peak. At an elevation of around 8,054 feet, visitors are treated to an incredible view of Crater Lake, Wizard Island, and the surrounding landscapes. It's a popular spot for sunrise or sunset, providing an unforgettable experience and an unparalleled perspective of the majestic beauty of Crater Lake.
