    Crater Lake snowshoe hikes

Participants should be at least 8 years old, in reasonably good physical condition, and come prepared with warm clothing and water-resistant footwear. No snowshoeing experience is necessary. Snowshoes are provided free, and the park does not collect an entrance fee in the winter. Space on each tour is limited, and advance reservations are required.
