Always wanted to see these mountains/lake/fall colors--was very crowded, but they helped us park so we could take photos

This trail is very pretty and very easy around the lake. Go early to avoid the crowds. Bring a camera because everywhere you look is a photo op!

If Obama decides to open the parks again, this is a very easy hike around the lake. We did it the last day before the parks were closed on September 30th, 2013. For a more challenging hike (and well worth the extra 2 miles), go up the Crater Lake Trail which starts here as well. The views are amazing. Probably took 50 pictures at this site, it is absolutely beautiful to see with the change of seasons (Aspen Pines dropping their yellow leaves) in early October.

Trail very easy and lovely at each step. We were blessed with snow on the mountain tops as well as a view of a moose family on our way up to the parking lot-what a treat!

It is an easy hike, and the views are worth it. Once you get away from the Lake, the crowds thin out.
