Crater Lake Snowshoe Hike
February 11 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pmfree
On Saturday, February 11th, Umpqua Watersheds host a snowshoe hike at Crater Lake National Park. The event is reserved for 30 people, and you may reserve your spot by filling out the reservation form https://tinyurl.com/CLNP-Snowshoe or by calling the UW office at 541-672-7065.
The Park has limited parking, so please carpool if you can. Drivers should show up with a full tank, as there are limited fueling opportunities. We do not charge for this trip but encourage you to be courteous and pitch in for gas if carpooling. When you get to the gate, tell them you are with the Umpqua Watersheds group. They should admit you for free. ***A new requirement at Crater Lake National Park is that all vehicles must carry chains and have them on if it is snowing. ***
Additional Details: Bring a sack lunch, good winter boots & warm clothes. Ski poles are handy, as they help with balance. Bring snowshoes if you have them. The Park Rangers provide Snowshoes, but you must give them back after the tour. Contact Kasey at email@example.com with any questions:
Meet up Sunday morning at the parking lot East of the Roseburg Library, front parking lot. Meet at 8:00 am so we can leave promptly at 8:15 am. We will stop at around 10:00 at Diamond Lake resort to use the facilities and the store if needed and leave promptly at 10:20 am. That should put us at the Park at around 11:30, with time to eat lunch before the hike. Drivers: BE SAFE…. TAKE YOUR TIME!
If you are meeting us at the rim, we will meet on the top floor of the Rim Village at 12:30.
We meet with the Rangers to get snowshoes at 1 pm. (usually next to the old Crater Lake Lodge at the end of the long parking lot) Cell service is limited. We will meet at the Rim Village Cafe before the hike. You are also welcome to bring food to eat in the Cafe. The top floor of the Cafe has plenty of tables and chairs for large groups to eat together. Before the hike, please gather with everyone for a group photo.
