Route: Crater Lake Rim Drive (OR)

Oregon, US

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.



I plan to go for this supported tomorrow afternoon/night. (8/3/2019)
