Palmateer Point and Twin Lakes Trail Loop ist ein 9.1 Meilen langer, wenig besuchter Rundweg in der Nähe von Mount Hood Parkdale, Oregon. Er führt entlang eines Sees, durch schönen Wald und es gibt schöne Wildblumen und oftmals Wildtiere zu sehen. Aufgrund der Steigung und Distanz ist die Strecke als schwierig einzustufen. Hier kann hervorragend gewandert und gezeltet werden. Die Route ist am besten von Juni bis Oktober zugänglich. Hunde sind erlaubt, müssen allerdings an der Leine gehalten werden.

Great trail. Very quiet. Lakes were frozen and the short jog up Palmeteer was worth the view. No snow yet.

Worth the mileage for Palmateer Point alone.

Besides this being a longer hike I wouldn’t consider it hard when compared to other hard trails like Mount Defiance or Kings Mountain. We did the loop counter clockwise and enjoyed it. There were quite a few people by Frog Lake however only passed a half dozen people on the trail. Mostly forest views excluding the two lakes and Mount Hood making an appearance towards the end. Forest Pass is required at the parking lot.

Beautiful trail. Be sure to take the spur trail up to Palmateer Point, the views are incredible! The Twin lakes are clear and pristine. Perfect day hike!

Hiked on 3/16...beautiful day with fresh powder, some sun and light snow. Trail is well marked, both lakes absolutely gorgeous. Did not see one person the entire hike. Clocked 10 Miles and took us 5 hours, 15 minutes with a small lunch break at Upper Lake.

Just got back from this overnight trip. At this time, snow is gone and bugs were only a 2 out of 5. Not bad at all. Lower Lake is deeper, so later in the year you could still drink the water, but Upper is only a few feet deep and already was starting to get warm There are at least eight nice camp sites around Upper Lake and even with a full scout troupe at one end, after 9pm all we heard was a single frog. Now, going from Upper to Palmateeer View was a bit tricky. The trail is washed down a little, so it's a slow-go if it has been raining. Also, the map shows a small trail going between Twin Lakes Trail and Palmateer. We could not find any trace of this trail and we walked it twice. Did not get all the way to the View Point. It seem farther then the map indicated, and we had to cross a stream that did not appear on the map, so we were confused. Not 100% but I think we were to cross the stream and proceed another 1/2 mile to the View Point. Oh well, next trip. Overall, the Upper Lake area is awesome, per - The Three D's Team: Daddy, Daughter and a Dog.

I wanted to add that the description they give seems to describe the Twin Lakes Trail out of Frog Lake, but the map and directions are for the Twin Lakes trail out of Elk Lake. Two totally different trails and lakes. This one (Elk Lake) is probably 6.5 miles one way, with maybe 1,500' gain and 1,100' loss. The distance in the description matches the other Twin Lakes Trail out of Frog Lake perfectly. You can do the Elk Lake trail out and back in a day, but you best start early and travel light.

I think the previous reviewer is referring to a different twin lakes. This trailhead leaves from Elk Lake in the Bull of the Woods Wilderness north of Detroit, OR. There are good views of Jefferson as you climb above Elk Lake, and the lakes themselves are nice and quiet. The trailhead from Bagby Hot Springs terminates above Elk Lake. Battlax Mt. is a good diversion. There is no trail to upper Twin Lake, but just follow the outflow stream from lower Twin Lake. Yes it's weird but the Upper Lake is lower than the Lower Lake per my map.

The trail start by the restrooms at Frog Lake Sno-Park. (Don't forget your Sno-Park Pass) You won't see Frog Lake this way, but you can see both the Twin Lakes and snowshoe across them. There are some hills, but nothing too steep. There aren't vast views of Mt. Hood or anything, but it's well traveled and not too crowded. The trail is very well marked by the blue diamonds.
