CRATER LAKE, Ore. (AP) - The North Entrance Road and West Rim Drive in Crater Lake National Park will open for travel Saturday morning.

Superintendent Craig Ackerman says visitors now can drive to and from the park using the popular route and access spectacular views of the lake from West Rim Drive.

He says most park facilities are now open for the season.

National Park Service snow removal crews will now focus on opening East Rim Drive, Pinnacles Road and Lost Creek Campground.

Ackerman says visitors should use caution as patches of snow remain on the ground in most locations throughout the park. Snow amounts are greater at higher elevations along Rim Drive.

Most trails, including Garfield and Watchman Peaks, remain closed because of snow.
