Treat yourself to a self-guided walk through Rim Village. It is an historic district listed in 1997 on the National Register of Historic Places. A native stone parapet wall outlines the Rim Village Promenade. This is a pedestrian only zone at the rim edge and serves as a guide through the village.
Nature inspired and art influenced the architectural design of Rim Village. Rustic-style features were created with native stone and logs. Walkways follow natural plantings. Drinking fountains shaped from native boulders once highlighted the promenade—only one remains in working order today.
Begin the walking tour at Kiser Studio, which today is the Rim Visitor Center and the Crater Lake Natural History Association Bookstore. Rangers can offer information and insight to the history of Rim Village.
