Distance - Trail Ratings: 6 and 11 km - 4D
Description: The 6 km walk will start at the Rim Village Visitor Center and walk along the rim of Crater Lake on the Discovery Point Trail to Discovery Point then return back to the start of the Garfield Peak trail before returning to the Visitor Center. The 6 km route is rated 2B. For those doing the 11 km route, walkers will complete the 6 km route then walk to Garfield Peak. This 5 km portion of the walk is rated 4D as the trail is steep, narrow and has loose gravel and very uneven footing. The side of the trail is a drop off and there is no guard rail. The US Park Service rates the Garfield Peak Trail as Strenuous. Great views along the Discovery Point Trail and on top of Garfield Peak. If snow conditions block either of the trails (frequently until mid July) there will be a 2.5 km trail that will be on pavement in the Rim Village area with views of Crater Lake and Wizard Island Park entrance fees in 2020 are $30 per vehicle (car). Golden Age Passes and America the Beautiful Senior Passes allow free admittance. Must show pass and photo ID.
