Wizard Island is a 763-foot cinder cone created when Crater Lake first filled with water after the volcano collapsed. During the summer, the Wizard Island shuttle gives you plenty of time to hike to the summit and take in the panoramic view, fish, swim, and explore this unique part of Crater Lake National Park.
While on Wizard Island, be sure to hike the Wizard Island Summit Trail. This moderate hike is approximately 1 hour to the top of the island with a path leading to the 90-foot deep crater summit. Total trail length is 2.2 miles round trip.
