BCJOn the snow  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 21, 2008


I've climbed this in the summer and it's, of course, an easy hike to the top. Under the snow it was a steep and slick climb up icy snow in the trees. We camped right next to the ranger tower; it was beautiful. The approach to the base involved about 13 miles of snowshoeing.

Rain + a late start killed any other plans, plus it's always nice to visit beautiful Crater Lake. A nice, mellow hike with amazing views. Up & down in a little less than 3 hours.

Date Climbed: Aug 21, 1999
We hiked this trail after graduating from UO. It was maybe 38, maybe colder. The summit was socked in, but the observation hut was a nice thing to cower behind. Cool arrangement of firs- cali red, noble, black and several others. I'd like to see the view when there is one! Well, it is the peak of the park.

Beautiful day with clear skys and no wind. Huge bike race around the lake with thousands of participants made this 1.5 hour car to car jaunt worth doing. Great view of the lake and surrounding mountains.

Quick hike up and down the trail in about 1:45hrs round trip. Fantastic views, although a bit hazy today.. couldn't see Shasta or the Sisters.

Easy hike - maybe an hour. The view of the lake is incredible Mt. Thielen looks so inviting.

Date Climbed: Oct 28, 2006


After climbing Thielsen earlier this month I decided to cruise back down to southern oregon to hit this P2K'er. Nice hike, could see knobby looking Shasta in the distant south, first time I had seen it in 20 years or so. Hike went quick so busted over to Hillman Peak and climbed it also.

I've climbed this one at least 3 times. Great views of Crater Lake and there are usually other hikers to socialize with.

highest point in Crater Lake National Park; after finishing Thielsen earlier in the afternoon, we checked out the NP and were hoping for a nice view from Mt. Scott- unfortunately wildfires burning inside the park made everything smokey and there were no clear views. that together with the fact the trail is dusty and dry made it debatable whether or not it was worth it to hike to the top.

395guyrelaxing on the peak after the marathon  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2006


After running the Crater Lake Marathon in the morning, I changed clothes and hiked up Mt Scott to eat some lunch. I just couldn't resist seeing the park (and much of the marathon course, including the highpoint of the course at Cloud Cap) from the highest peak in the park.

BTW, the marathon was great. I finished 6th overall in 3:27:02. We had perfect weather (cloudless skies; 40 and breezy at the start; 60s and sunny at the finish). If you're a runner, I highly recommend running either the 6.7-mile, 13-mile, or full marathon races here at Crater Lake on the second Saturday of August. Tough courses, but what a great place to run.

My husband and I and my two older children climbed this. My son was 13 and daughter 10, we made it to the top with a lot of complaining about it being "so far" but then all liked the views very much.

It was my third peak this day in the park. I had ascended hillman peak for the rim high point, garfield peak as a little warm up for Mt scott. I believe I ascended in fifty minutes. It was plenty fast for me. I did however come across a few joggers/ultra marathoners. The views from the summit are awsome of the lake. The klamath country to the south is very nice. the distant views a bit hazy.

I couldn't believe how gorgeous the views were and how dry and dusty the trail was.

My wife and I were camping out at Mazama Village because this was the week of the Persied (I hope I spelled that right) Meteor showers. This particular peak had been eating at me. I very much love to take pictures and I heard it had a great view of Crater Lake. I was not disappointed, the view was gorgeous. I was almost able to fit the whole view of the lake into my normal camera viewfinder but not quite, luckily I brought my Wide angle. Total time up and down, 2 hours. Definately a great peak for catching the sunset over Crater Lake. Enjoyed it thoroughly!
