You can't access the fire tower but that's OK. The hike was such a GREAT hike with fantastic views and you really get to appreciate natures beauty from the top. Look for the Clark's Nutcracker bird in the trees here. They're pretty neat to watch

You have the best view of not just the lake, but the surrounding region. There was still some snow on the ground on our visit, which made it interesting in June... Enjoy!

We visited this site several times during our 2-1/2 days at Crater Lake and were not disappointed. Snow was there there the first day, but disappeared with 65-degree warmth the next day. Gorgeous views of the lake, mountains, and forests.

Some can climb this mountain and get some amazing views. Most of us just see it and are glad we were there. So amazing to see the Cascades from the lower to the uppers. Some start out at 9000 feet but go up to over 14,000 feet. If altitude bothers you, stay hydrated and take all of this in slowly!
