Tour Itinerary

DAY 1: Roseburg – Toketee Campground / Hot Springs

Meet your guides in the morning for a short group orientation and safety discussion. The journey begins in Roseburg and follows the scenic North Umpqua River into the Cascade Mountains. We will finish at Toketee Campground. Two miles from the campground is Umpqua (Toketee) Springs, a beautiful undeveloped natural hot spring overlooking the North Umpqua River.

Summary: 67 miles (107 km)  |  4,876 ft (1,486 m) elevation gain.

DAY 2: Toketee Camp – Diamond Lake Camp

After breakfast we take a 0.4-mile (0.6 km) hike to enjoy Toketee Falls, a beautiful waterfall flowing over basalt cliffs into a wave-tossed pool. We’ll stop again to take a second 0.4-mile (0.6 km) hike to view Watson Falls, an ever-stunning 293-foot waterfall. Whitehorse Falls is up next. It is only a 14-foot-tall waterfall, but it always captures everyone’s attention with its magical presence. The day concludes with camping adjacent to Diamond Lake.

Summary: 22 miles (36 km)  |  3,132 ft (955 m) elevation gain.

DAY 3: Diamond Lake to Crater Lake Campground

From Diamond Lake, we climb into Crater Lake National Park, Oregon’s only national park. Crater Lake inspires awe. It is famous for its iconic deep blue color and water clarity. As we make our way along the west edge of the lake there are ample view stops including Merriam Point and Watchman Peak. This side of the lake offers the best views of a volcanic cinder cone known as Wizard Island. We end the day at Crater Lake Campground.

Summary: 27 miles (44 km)  |  2,886 ft (880 m) elevation gain.

DAY 4: Ride the Rim of Crater Lake – Return to Roseburg

We begin the Rim Ride where we first got a glimpse of the lake the day before and continue clockwise around the lake. Unparalleled vistas of Crater Lake keep coming at us as we make our way around the lake. We finish the day at Crater Lake Lodge. The Lodge overlooks the lake at Rim Village and offers majestic views of the lake’s pristine blue waters and sheer cliff walls. The trip finishes with a 2-hour return drive to Roseburg.
