Twin Lake South (lower Twin Lake) is a 4.4 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Government Camp, OR that features a lake and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking and snowshoeing and is accessible from December until March.
Located at the Frog Lake Sno park about six miles southeast of Government Camp, this is a great trail for snowshoeing in the winter. Make sure to use the north Twin Lakes trailhead, which is part of the Pacific Crest Trail. Snowmobiles are not allowed on this trail.
Love this for snowshoeing
This is one of my favorite snowshoeing hikes near Mount Hood. Almost all of the trail is in deep woods without views, so it gets less use than other Sno-Parks in the area. The hike starts on the PCT, then I take the junction to Lower Twin Lake. At the lake, there are plenty of spots to stretch out and relax for a snack before turning around and going back. The local birds have this spot figured out too. Be prepared for them to swoop down and pick up any stray crumbs that you drop.
