Crater Lake Day Trip from Bend

With a depth of 1,943 feet, Crater Lake is the deepest lake in the United States - and one of the most beautiful. The water's intense blue color is an indication of its great depth and purity. Surrounded by cliffs, the lake is fed entirely by rain and snow. Scientists consider Crater Lake to be the cleanest and clearest large body of water in the world.<br>rater Lake rests in the belly of a dormant volcano. The volcano once stood 12,000 feet tall, but it collapsed after a major eruption 7,700 years ago. Later eruptions formed Wizard Island, a cinder cone that rises from the water. The park has an abundance of fascinating volcanic features, including a second rocky island, the Phantom Ship.<br>Beyond the lake, old-growth forests blanket the landscape. Established in 1902, the park protects 15 species of conifers, from towering ponderosa pines to ancient whitebark pines. These trees shelter a wide array of wildlife, including black bears, mountain lions, elk, and spotted owls.

This hike is very close to the road. Park in the parking area and take the short trail back. It is worth the stop.

This beautiful little fall was very close to the highway, and the parking lot is practically on top of it, but the trail to the observation deck is well maintained and designed. We're in our 70's and not the fittest, but this one was pretty easy for us. The fall is relatively small, compared to others in the area, but beautiful and park service has really done a great job with making it photographically attractive.

An easy walk out from the parking lot gets you to the falls and a view of the river. There are more impressive falls along Oregon 138, but this one is easy to get to and makes a nice stop.

Whitehorse Falls is a really pretty little water fall, and a very short walk to the water fall. It made for some pretty pictures in the shaded area. It was a good stop along highway 138 on our way to Crater Lake. There was a bathroom and ample parking. Compared to the many falls of Oregon this one is a lot smaller, but again not far off of the main highway and a short walk.
