Enjoy “vehicle-free” days at Crater Lake
Experience majestic Crater Lake National Park like you probably never have before: in fall and without cars! On September 20 and 27, Crater Lake’s East Rim Drive will be “vehicle-free” for great opportunities to hike and bike on 24 miles of roads around the park. The road will be closed from North Junction to Park Headquarters, which ranges in elevation between 6450 and 7050 feet.
With steep grades, you’ll get a nice workout with spectacular views. Entrance into Crater Lake National Park is still $10 per vehicle or $5 per person ($10 per family) if walking or bicycling into the park. Vehicle-free information will be available at the North and South Entrance Stations and the park’s visitor information centers at Rim Village and Park Headquarters.
Crater Lake’s daily high temperature in September is 63 Fahrenheit with a low of 41 (17/3 Celsius).
