KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) - Sections of Rim Drive at Crater Lake National Park will be free of cars the next two Saturdays.

The Klamath Falls Herald and News (https://bit.ly/1qhwYW6 ) reports that Rim Drive from the North Entrance Junction to park headquarters will be closed to cars from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. the next two Saturdays.

Motorists will be able to travel from park headquarters to Rim Village and along West Rim Drive. Access also will be available to west-side trails during the closures, including Annie Creek, The Watchman, Lightning Springs and the North Entrance overlook.

Superintendent Craig Ackerman says the park intends to make car-free Saturdays an annual, late September event. It started last year and park officials got positive feedback.
