A two hour or so drive around the rim round circling crater lake. The driver and ranger on our trip, Bill and Donna, were brilliant, welcoming and funny whilst explaining the creation of the lake and the history of the area. Stopping at 4-6 overlooks...More

The Trolley departs from the Gift shop near the Lodge roughly every half hour. Tickets are reasonably priced and the driver provides interesting commentary.

My wife and I typically skip tours and are glad we took this one - the guide, a Park Ranger, was beyond knowledgable about everything from the lake itself to the flora, fauna and wildlife. If you plan to drive the park, and not do...More

This is a good way to get around the Crater with several pull-offs. It has the trappings of being a wealth of information, but it fell a little short. We enjoyed the ride and the views at the pull-off points, but I would have loved...More

We bought tickets for the 10:00 trolley and were glad we got on the first run of the day. Due to wildfires the haze gets thicker as the day goes along so your views are better in the morning. Parking was also much easier at...More
