Route: Crater Lake Rim Drive (OR)

Location
Oregon, US
Description

Crater Lake National Park is in the Cascade Mountains of southern Oregon. It’s known for its namesake Crater Lake, formed by the now-collapsed volcano, Mount Mazama. Wizard Island is a cinder cone near the western edge of the lake. The Rim Drive, a road surrounding the lake, offers views of the park’s volcanic formations. The park’s numerous trails include Sun Notch, with views of the Phantom Ship, a small island.The 33-mile Rim Scenic Road has more than 20 scenic overlooks and done in a clockwise direction with over 3K+ vertical gain. 
 

Note that on certain days of the year a 24-mile section of the 33-mile Rim Drive is closed to motor vehicles, making it especially nice for cyclists and pedestrians.
