Wizard Island is a 763-foot cinder cone created when Crater Lake first filled with water after the volcano collapsed. During the summer, Wizard Island boat tours combine a tour of the lake’s perimeter with three hours to spend on the island – 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 Wizard Island with a path leading to the 90-foot deep crater summit. Total trail length is 0.9 miles round trip.
