Description

Wander along the Crater Lake Trail for a chance to see the beautiful handiwork of the prehistoric Wisconsin Glacier. Formed during the Pleistocene over 22,000 years ago, the lake entices visitors with its cool, clear waters.

Fantastic vistas of the surrounding hemlock forests can be had from its prominent, ice-scoured, rocky shore.

Visitors wishing to double their lake-viewing for the day can follow the trail west, across the junction with the Appalachian Trail toward Hemlock Pond.
