Easy hike close to town, Great mountain views from Eagle point. Clean area can get crowded, parking very limited.

Did this trail today, pretty socked in with clouds at the top but some great views on the way up. Had quite a bit of snow. Will be doing this one again.

This area has miles of trails to ride or hike. Some are family friendly and some are technical. The views of the Cascade Mountain Range are stunning and other trails look out towards Smith Rock. There are picnic tables or ride or hike into town to the 2 fantastic bike shops. One has food carts and brews.

Gorgeous hiking! Several small meadow edges still had paintbrush & wild aster. I took the north lake trail (& forgot to turn on record until much later). I was on a photo shoot hike so didn't quite make it to the lake. Got lots of great painting material though. My painter's eyes were delighted & my feets were happy. Trail follows the south side of the lava flow, so lots of interesting formations & out croppings.

I'd call this one on the easy side of moderate. Not as tough as Black Butte but not a stroll either.

Tru Denton's review has the most accurate directions. I drove straight to it. Signage is for Lava Lake Camp, as he says.

Another fun hike with some great views and even better ones if you feel like scrambling up the hill above one of the lakes. Great fun for the whole family.

Highly recommend this hike! It's fun going through the lava bed area and up to little belknap. Great 360 views and if your feeling up to it afterwards head over to big belknap for an even better view. We camped in the Mckenzie pass area for a week and this was by far my favorite hike.

Beautiful hike! The burnt forest and a special spookiness to it.

went on a very rainy day so the lake didn't have the same awesomeness as on a nice one.

Love this hike. Great for distance and scenery. Do it on a week day lot less people. I personally would recommend it for dogs because one end is lava rock. Trails easy to follow the road is on a small
Part of it but it's wooded enough to not ruin the lake view.

Breathtaking views with varying types of foliage. Perfect for the fall, we walked through some light snow but the walk is just difficult enough that we stayed plenty warm. The first 1/3 or so is a fairly steep climb uphill but it mellows out and makes for an easy journey back.

Mostly trees and shade until the last 1/2 mile. Too steep to run down. Beautiful all around.

I hiked the eastern portion of this trail while hiking down to Tamolitch pool, making this part of a 2 day backpacking trip. We camped near Tamolitch pool and the Clear Lake trail was at the very beginning and end of our hike, which was great! The paved path through the volcanic flows is wild to look at.
