On the way back from the Rim to Rim hike we were looking for a short hike just to stretch the legs and get some fresh air. Doing a quick check on Route Manager noticed this short route into Crater Lake that looked like the perfect amount of effort. We arrived short of the track start to find it blocked…looks like maybe the forest service has dug up the road to keep people from driving it. But it only added ¼ mile to the track so not an issue.

Once past the road obstacle we continued up the old road section to the crater entrance. There is a fence to pass through and then down into the crater. We hiked down and around the small pond partway before stopping to sit for a beverage. After the break hiked back to the gate but instead of going back down we did another loop this time around the rim of the crater. The hike around the rim is easy off trail with great views the whole way of Kendrick on one side and Humphreys on the other and is well worth the time. Then headed back down to finish off the short hike.
