The Watchman Peak Trail begins from West Rim Drive approximately four miles north of Rim Village. The trailhead is signed as The Corrals on the eastern side of the roadway. From the trailhead the route climbs steadily westward along the northern flanks of The Watchman. As it gains the western ridge the track turns eastward and ascends toward the summit. Slightly more than a half mile from the trailhead the route reaches the historic fire lookout on the 8,013-foot peak. From this lofty height the views abound. To the east is Crater Lake and Wizard Island, westward is the Rogue River National Forest.
Directions: From Annie Spring Entrance Station, Drive 4 miles northward into the park to Park Headquarters and Rim Drive. Turn left on to West Rim Drive and travel approximately 6 miles to the trailhead.
Elevation: 7,400 feet
