Beautiful hike! I bit of a climb on the way up but for the most part it levels out. Rocky at parts so good shoes are a must. Loved being surrounded by the tall aspens.

About 2 hours round trip. Was a nice hike for me and the kids. Definately worth the extra effort. The views in the Crater Lake were great.

1.8 miles up - with rocks and 500 ft incline throughout - not too difficult at all. The trail up has amazing flowers int he summer wonderful scents, lovely scenery and crater lake is a little oasis - a must do hike!
