Frog Lake Trail is a 1.4 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Maupin, OR that features a lake and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, mountain biking, and snowshoeing and is accessible from March until September.
Directions from Sandy: Travel east on Highway 26 to Frog Lake Sno-Park (4.5 miles southeast of its junction with Highway 35). Walk north on the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail for approximately 100 yards to the trailhead sign. A more common way of accessing the trail is to drive or walk south of the Sno-Park on Road 2610 to Frog Lake Campground. A trailhead sign is along 2610 east of the campground.
This is a great place to take the kids for a little R and R. I wouldnt camp in the campgrounds when you can camp freely outside of the lake area. I park on the backside of the lake to avoid the crowds and hike in. One year we saw thousands of frogs in late September lining the lake, but we mainly go there in early summer to pick mushrooms. Dont pick any mushrooms unless you can properly identify them.
Great snowshoeing trail!
