Portion of official PCT closed in Crater Lake National Park

Sections: /
October 12th, 2017

The official PCT is closed from the intersection with the Lightning Springs Trail (mile 1825) to the North Entrance Road (~mile 1836.7). The Lightning Springs Trail and the West Rim Trail are open.

Hikers will want to use the West Rim Trail through the park. Equestrians are not allowed on the West Rim Trail and will need to shuttle around the closed section of the PCT.

The PCT closure will remain in place at least through early summer 2018.
