  • Crater Lake snowshoe hikes
    Through April: Rangers at Crater Lake National Park lead free snowshoe hikes at 1 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday. The hikes last two hours and cover about a mile of moderately strenuous terrain in forests and meadows on the crater's rim. Hikers must be at least 8 years old and be in reasonably good physical condition. No previous snowshoeing experience is necessary. Hikers must have warm clothing and water-resistant footwear. Free snowshoes are available or hikers can bring their own. A limited number of hikers can participate in each group hike, so advance reservations are recommended. Hikes for groups of 10 or more can be arranged on weekdays or weekend mornings. The park's visitor center and the Rim Village Cafe and Gift Shop are open daily. For information or to sign up, call the park's visitor center at 541-594-3100.
