We had a wonderful time taking the trolley.With all of the road work being done there the trolley was the way to go , Our ranger was the best I don't remember his name (red hair) Loved all of his visual effects in telling everyone about the park and area around it. The female driver Ida? Wonderful.. The weather was... More

Wow! An amazing 2 hour journey with a ranger - couldn't ask for more! We stopped at all the look-outs and had plenty of opportunity to take pictures and ask questions. Take your own water and don't plan on any bathroom breaks!! A great way to see the lake!!

We got Ranger Dave who has worked at crater lake for 8 years & I believe 11 summers at Crater Lake. He obviously knew every fact about it & shared it in a fun way with us. 2hr 15 min drive around the rim with about 6 stops or so (each 5-10 min) each. Enough to take some photos, get... More

What a pleasant surprise. I didn't know this service existed. Our family took this trip last year to Crater lake. It was most memorable. The ride encircled the entire rim of the lake stopping at different sites allowing us plenty of photo opportunities. A park ranger told of its history. This year we will be taking our visiting guests from... More

The trolley ride, driver, and naturalist were excellent. It was nice to sit back and let others who know a lot more than I do, do the work. With the hotter temperatures I recommend going in the morning. Except while we were there 2 of the 3 mornings were hazy and it cleared up in the afternoon.....

I'm not normally a fan of being in the tourist cattle drive so when my wife brought this activity up; i eye'd it with suspicion. But it turned out to be money and time well spent. The trolleys are modest size so I do not believe that even a full-load would feel like a cattle drive. In our case, it... More

A very nice 2 hour tour around the rim with multiple stops for viewing and picture taking. The park guide was very informative and was quite the learning experience!

This is the way to experience beautiful Crater Lake. The Ranger on board shared his vast knowledge with us about crater lake. The bus driver made several photo stops. Sit back, relax, enjoy the beautiful views and leave the driving to them!

We knew before arriving we would be short on time so we made reservations to ride the trolley, I'm so glad we did because they were sold out when we arrived. We were pleasantly suprised to see that a Park Ranger would be our tour guide. This was a great experience, if you are driving it is difficult to see... More

We enjoyed our 2 hour trolley journey (10:30am-1:30pm) around the rim of Crater Lake before the weather turned in mid-September. The trolley left exactly at 10:30am so show up 15 minutes ahead if you have to buy your tickets. I had done the Wizard Island Boat tour the prior day, so when I saw the same Park Ranger on board...
