HIGH CASCADES SEGMENT

Crater Lake

Oregon’s only National Park, less than 25 miles off the Byway, is one of the Cascades’ finest features. Interpretive exhibits and activities explain its origin. This “Wow” crater resulted from the cataclysmic explosion of Mt. Mazama 7,700 years ago. Take the 33-mile rim drive around the crater, or hike down the Cleetwood Cove Trail to catch a boat ride on the deep blue water of the caldera. (541) 594-2211.

Access the crater through the south entrance (Hwy. 62) in the winter. Call (800) 977-6368 for current weather and road conditions. Day visit.
