Snowshoe With a Ranger

Ranger-guided Snowshoe Walks during Winter Months November through end of April

Crater Lake is one of the snowiest inhabited places in America, receiving an average of 44 feet of snow per year.  Ranger-led snowshoe walks are a fun way to explore this winter wonderland while learning how the park's plants, animals, and the lake itself are shaped by the forces of winter.

Ranger-guided snowshoe walks at Crater Lake last 2 hours and cover about one mile.  Snowshoes are provided free of charge, or visitors can bring their own.  No previous snowshoeing experience is necessary, all ages are welcome and there is no cost for the tour.  The walks begin at 1 PM.  During the winter months, the park entrance fee is waived.

Space is limited, and advance reservations are recommended.  You can sign up at the Steel Visitor Center or by calling 541-594-3100.

Organized groups of 10 or more people (such as scout troops, hiking clubs, and church groups) may be able to arrange for a separate tour just for their group.
