Crater Lake, OR - Crater Lake National Park invites your participation in public scoping for the forthcoming Crater Lake National Park Trail Management Plan (TMP).

The scoping will focus on objectives of a TMP that evaluates recreational trends, identifies appropriate opportunities and develops a comprehensive trail network that facilitates alternative experiences to enhance visitor understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of park values while preserving those values unimpaired.

Information we gather from the public will be used to draft preferred, no action, and possibly other contrasting alternatives for a Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) and/or other NEPA/NHPA documents.

We want to hear from you!

Comments will be taken throughout the 30-day public scoping period, from March 21, 2014 to April 20, 2014. During this scoping period, the public is invited to identify any issues or concerns they might have with the proposed project, so the NPS can appropriately consider them in the preparation of the EA.

Anyone providing written comments should be aware their entire comment - including their personal identifying information such as personal address, phone number, email address, or other personal information - may be made publicly available at any time. While anyone wishing to comment may ask the NPS in their comment to withhold their personal identifying information from public review, the NPS cannot guarantee it will be able to do so.

Submit your comments in the following ways:

  • Turn in written comments at the NPS Crater Lake National Park Steel Visitor Center, attention Scott Burch.
  • E-mail comments to scott_burch@nps.gov. Please include your email address for future notifications.
  • Mail your comments to:
