This one is on my must ride and must return list…
Written DirectionsSimply start in Roseburg, OR and head east on Route 138. Once you pass Diamond Lake, you'll be heading south on Route 138 and at this point you should follow the signs to Crater Lake as there are multiple ways to enter the park so choose whichever you desire.
SceneryHighway 138 from Roseburg is quite scenic following along the Umpqua River for many miles. The scenery gets quite spectacular once reaching Crater Lake National Park and especially the Crater Lake Rim Road. But beware that the rim road is only open all the way around during very late spring to early autumn. There is a plethora of scenic stops all around the rim so be sure to bring your camera. I actually rode from Blaine Washington to Crater Lake, but it was too long a ride to include in this post.
Drive EnjoymentThe road is of excellent quality with lots of high speed sweeping curves. And many wide spots in the road to stop and take photos or just rest. Be sure to gas up in Roseburg as there are no stations until you reach the Rim Road of Crater Lake.
