As of mid-July, Crater Lake NP staff is asking PCT hikers to avoid walking the Rim trail due to hazardous snow conditions and road construction on the West Rim Drive. PCT hikers are being asked to stay on the official PCT route west of the Rim. And please note, due to the lingering snow pack on the PCT some sections of the PCT have not been logged out yet. So, please plan accordingly. Hikers can visit the Rim Village to view the lake but please return to the main PCT route as you continue your journey. The PCTA and CLNP staff thank-you. Good luck and be safe!
