Little Crater Lake is located in a beautiful alpine meadow full of summertime wildflowers, and is also a good spot for wildlife viewing and birding. It is accessible by a paved walkway. But the best part of Little Crater Lake is the lake, or pond, itself. It is very small but very deep,and it is “gin clear” with an iridescent blue-green color.
