We enjoyed our 2 hour trolley journey (10:30am-1:30pm) around the rim of Crater Lake before the weather turned in mid-September. The trolley left exactly at 10:30am so show up 15 minutes ahead if you have to buy your tickets. I had done the Wizard Island Boat tour the prior day, so when I saw the same Park Ranger on board the trolley as was on the boat, I was worried there was going to be a lot of duplication. The Ranger recognized our group, and did a nice job of not repeating the same information. At the same time she made it fun and interesting and since she was a local she could give insights to the general area that others could not.
It was great to hear about the surrounding mountains and the Crater Lake native folklore. This was only $25.00 per person and it was nice not to have to drive around the Crater by car and take photos, but instead ride the trolley. We had made a reservation in advance (recommended during high season). We met the trolley at the community center about 2 blocks from the Crater Lake Lodge. The seats were hard but they gave us a cushion to soften the ride. My favorite stop was the water fall. The sun was out but the winds were strong.
