Give yourself plenty of time to see the stunning scenery and perhaps have lunch in the Lodge with its lovely fires. Make sure you take plenty of photographs. We went on the two hour trolley tour with an excellent guide.

Ranger Brian made the already incredible Crater Lake experience over the moon by creatively educating us on the geology and history of this fabulous place. We loved every minute of the Crater Lake Trolley.

We would highly recommend the 2 hr trolley tour as a way to initially orient to the park as well as get some basic information from a park range. Mike the driver told us about the origin of the trolleys and the current service. Ranger Dave enhanced the spectacular scenery with pertinent facts and essential background. The five or six... More

Excellent way to see the park without worrying that your husband might drive off the road! Mike was an excellent driver and knowledgeable about the park. Gabby was also a good tour guide. She willingly took pictures keeping the schedule in mind. Great experience. Military and senior discounts available.

There are good reasons to opt for the trolley, particularly if everyone in your party wants to gawk without concentrating on driving, you have any apprehensions about driving the Rim Drive, the park is crowded, or if you want some first-hand insights from the guide who accompanies the trolley. The best seats are on the right side of the trolley... More

Crater Lake Trolley provided an incredible service this past weekend for cyclists riding the rim when it was closed to car traffic. How lovely it was to see the trolley pull up (along with another vehicle for bike portage!!!) at the main lot to shuttle us back to the North lot. It allowed us to avoid the semi-treacherous ascent up... More

If you have one day to visit the park like we did, this is the way to do it. The park ranger was very informative but a little less jokes on on his spill of the park would of made it a 5 rating. I appreciate his box of props but the side jokes were lame. The trolley ride was... More

We decided to take the trolley because out of the 6 of us nobody wanted to drive the rim! We had a sweet driver and our guide was awesome, he grew up in the area and we learned really neat things about the lake, the environment, and the current issues with the lake. They stopped at all the key points... More

I am so glad that I read the trip advisor reviews about the Trolley Tour around the rim of Crater Lake before my husband and I headed there a few weeks back. Crater Lake is stunningly beautiful! And, we were so happy that we were able to thoroughly enjoy it since we did not have to drive the 30 miles... More
