Route Description for Raven Trail

Raven Trail runs from near the Crater Lake Lodge along a ridge south of the lake. This trail is used throughout the year by hikers, snowshoers, and cross-country skiers. It’s moderately difficult and offers forest and mountain views.

The signage isn’t great, but keep an eye out for blue diamonds on the trees and you can find your way through. From the trailhead, the route drops down off the immediate crater edge and then hugs the edge of a ridge as it runs parallel to the road.

The route ends where it reaches the road. At this point, turn around and retrace your steps to the trailhead.
