Pacific Crest Trail Oregon portion begins where the California portion ends in the Siskiyou Mountains. From there, it passes through the Cascade Siskiyou National Monument area before rising into the Cascade Range. Not far into the southern reaches of the Cascade Range, trekkers hit Crater Lake National Park, where some of the most spectacular scenery in the country can be savored. A spur trail breaks off from the PCT in Crater Lake National Park, and it leads to the crater’s rim.
Created by a violent volcanic eruption some 7,700 years ago, Oregon's Crater Lake is a 1,943 foot deep crystal clear lake surrounded by sheer cliffs and old growth ponderosa pine. Crater Lake National Park offers a great many outdoor activities—in addition to simply gazing across the 6 mile wide crater—including swimming, exploring Wizard Island and hiking a portion of the legendary Pacific Crest Trail. - CountryLiving.com
