Ride the Rim

September 21, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 6:00 pm

Welcome to Crater Lake’s Vehicle-Free Days, where motorized traffic is excluded from 25 miles on East Rim Drive.  This is a unique opportunity to explore the Park by foot or by bicycle.  Vehicle parking will be at two locations:  (a)  North Junctions, and, (b) Park Headquarters/Steel Visitor’s Center.  This is where you will enter the vehicle-free sections of the Park.  There will be five rest areas as shown on the map.

RIDE THE RIM 2019 occurs on two days this year: Saturday September 14th, and Saturday September 21st.

The hours of operation for the Rest Areas will be 8:00 am to 6:00 pm.  There will be a shuttle service between North Junction and the Park Headquarters.  Park Entrance Fees will apply, although there is no event cost.

Event Hours:  Road Closes to vehicles (except service vehicles) at 8:00 am.  Vehicles will be allowed back on East Rim Drive at 6:00 pm.  For detailed event information, check with personnel at the Information tables at either North Junction or Park Headquarters.

The event is FREE, we just ask you to sign-up in advance so we know you are coming.  Online registrants will receive a commemorative lapel pin for signing up in advance and letting us now where you’re from and what activity(s) you’ll be participating in.
