East Rim Drive is substantially longer and more windy than West Rim Drive. It leaves the lake side several times to navigate around various landmarks. Along the southeastern side of the lake the roadway rounds Cloudcap, Dutton Ridge and Vidae Ridge, which removes it from the lakeshore for most of the distance. East Rim Drive opens approximately one month after West Rim Drive, usually in mid-July.
