I went up Mt. Scott with a group of friends during a visit to Crater Lake. Nice and easy day hike to enjoy a spectacular aerial view of the lake.
Started up the guy, but it was getting dark and had to bail. South Sister the next day.
Hiked up with my one year old in foggy weather, what a bummer.
Headed up the regular trail and then down the NE ridge to Cascade Springs. There are a lot of signs advising people to stay on the trail so if you want to do the same, I'd run it by the people at the Ranger Station first. The view is amazing and the hike up is easy enough.
I highly recommend a stay at Cascade Springs if you get a chance, not a soul in sight. There appeared to be a lot of deer/small animal traffic in the area, though we didn't see anything. Also you get a great view of the mountain.
A friend and I trail ran this. Great view from the top.
A fun, easy trail with an amazing view.
Easy, fun hike. Crater Lake was very cool and interesting to visit.
Fun hike, great views from summit.
First of 7 summits in 4 days. A nice little hike with what would have been good views w/o the smoke from 2 nearby fires. Passed 30+ people on the way up. Up in 50 minutes, down in 38.
No dogs allowed on the trail; and it is enforced. So our group of four (plus the dog) split into twos and climbed while the others drove around the rim. Nice sunny day; 50 minutes to the top; incredible views.
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.
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.
Watched the sunset from the top. A nice view and a good end to the day.
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.
Short hike with great view.
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.
