Start your adventure behind the Steel Visitor Center, halfway between the Mazama Village entrance of Crater Lake National Park and the lake itself. It won't take long before you stumble upon the mystery that is the Lady of the Woods: a dazzling, intricate sculpted rock that experts are unsure whether it's natural or man-made. Loop your way back to the visitor center through colorful wildflowers and tranquil Munson Creek.

Bike around Crater Lake

I forgot how large Crater Lake was. Wikipedia said it was only 6 miles in diameter, multiply X 3.14 or C = πd and boom its only 18.84 miles around, that's cake, or pie.
