Beautiful walk around a small lake. Plenty of pines to offer shade, and boardwalks to keep you from wet muddy areas. View of Mt Hood is to die for! Beware though that this is not a quiet peaceful walk because of the resort. Parking nightmare and lots of noise from people on, in and around the lake
I wouldn't call it hiking. Nice and relaxing though. Lots of wood bridges.
Awesome. Took our 5 year old on his first hike and he absolutely loved it.
Nice mountain trail without much elevation gain. Fallen timber in some spots but we were able to get over/under/through all of it. Beautiful views of Mt Hood from north shore of the lake.
We enjoyed the Lost Lake loop trail with our kids, about 3.2 of easy trail with views of majestic Hood. There were huckleberries lining the lake and lots of lake critters. It gets busy in the summer but there are some other more challenging hikes out here like buck peak.
