Trolley ride is the way to go. Every stop has an interesting fact and view for taking photos. The ranger was full of interesting information and added some humor. He was very willing to answer questions. When you picked up your ticket they had free postcards and information available.

We took the trolley tour with two friends this past week while visiting Crater Lake. We were limited on time, so the trolley made for an excellent option, as the tour is only two hours long. There were about 12 of us total on the trolley. The tour takes you around the entire circumference of the lake. Our park ranger,... More

This was a great tour of the Crater from above and around the entire lake. Ranger Chris was very informative and humorous at times. Interesting facts and stops along the way for pictures.

We originally planned to drive around the rim road on our own, but when we learned of this alternative, we jumped at the chance to take it. We had a ranger guide to explain what we were seeing while practicing his stand up comedy act. Great fun! Of course, the main attraction is the lake itself. The talk on the... More

The trolley ride is a must for anyone who would like to do the Crater Lake rim by vehicle. The road is a bit treacherous and I do advise having a professional do the drive for you. The sights are quite literally amazing and the ride itself very informative. The view of the lake is a bucket list item for... More

Enjoyed the ride. Was a beautiful day with great vistas. We were limited because of road construction so we had the full time, but 2/3 of the ride. But it was fine. The volunteer ranger was interesting and personable. We stopped several times to get out and take photos. I had made reservations but didn't realize you don't actually pay... More

Having been told there was no need to buy tickets for the trolley to meet us at the Amtrak train, when the train was late we were told we needed to have a ticket; then told they do not "meet the train" (though their website and Amtrak say they do); then told trolley only goes up once at 9:30am.

Had a great time on the trolley. Ranger Madeline Rose made the time so much more interesting and fun. She was a great story teller and had lots of interesting facts about the lake, park and area. Our driver said she was one of the best and he was correct. She had show & tell with many of her facts... More

This was a great way to learn a lot about crater lake and the park. The trolly has a park ranger on board that answers any questions that the visitors have. The trolley also makes multiple stops around the lake to take pictures from various view points which is nice. It is kind of expensive but in the end I... More
