With sufficient snow on the ground, a nine mile (14.5 km) route to the rim of Crater Lake is groomed for snowmobiles. This route follows the North Entrance Road from OR Hwy 138. This road usually closes to vehicle and bicycle traffic around November 1. Generally, with the right snow conditions the route is opened for snow mobiles from December through March. Snowmobiles are not permitted beyond North Junction or on any other snow-covered area in the park.
