Beautiful hike with multiple waterfalls. I would love to go back and do the Looking Glass trail. We were worried the weather would be awful in October, but it was great. The meadow was a little too windy when we got there, but nothing some ear muffs couldn't fix.

HikingGreat!RockyScrambleSnow

Best hike so far in terms of pushing myself. At one point I veered from the trail cause I couldn’t quite tell where it was and ended up doing some mountain climbing that could have turned dangerous but I turned around and found the trail. Just stay in the grey rocks and boulder into the U and then beer left toward the lake. Pushed my body a lot but loved the views.

HikingBlowdownGreat!Off trailRockyScramble

For serious hikers that want a challenge, this is the trail for you. Hardest hike I've ever done, even compared to a day hike 18 miler. The trail is obscure after getting up past the boulders at the back of the first basin into the second basin so go slightly LEFT up the rocky slope and eventually you'll see the tiniest trail going straight up to the lip of the moutain. thats where the lake is.. I'll be honest, this was a mental battle and I've never been more proud of myself! Views are 5 stars. Challenge is 5 stars. But I love a challenge of determination and strength. This is a 8ish mile hike gaining and then losing 4,000 feet in elevation. So 4,000 feet in elevation in 4 ish miles. thats extreme. In return, you reach the highest lake in all of Oregon at 8100 feet elevation.

BackpackingBridge out

One of my favorite places to backpack and do day hikes once I'm in. Backpacked in the first day, hiked up Eagle Cap and took the Lakes Basin Trail (phone died omw back from Horseshoe Lake, but I got East Fork to Lakes Basin verified, anyway, so w/e) the second day, and backpacked out the third day. Went back and forth from my campsite to the water falls between Upper Lake and Mirror Lake for water. The trail up to Eagle Cap doesn't match what AllTrails shows on the ridge. The actual trail across the ridge (at least the one that everyone seemed to be using) is on the side opposite of Mirror Lake. There was one part on the ridge that was a little sketchy. It was fine going up, but going down, I had to hand my poles to someone so that I could scramble across. Really fun, in any case!

Absolutely beautiful hike! First time to this area and it’s safe to say I’ll be making another visit! Steady incline and lots of shade. Great weekend trip!

Trail is in rough shape from about a mile from on the cabin on up to the lake. This was our 4th trip up and working through the boulder field with no refined trail is serious work.

Didn’t get all the way up to the lake. The boulder field was sketchy and I couldn’t see a clear way around.

HikingGreat!

Love this hike. Worst part is the drive there. I went on Labor day weekend and the area around the lake was pretty busy. People who had parked at a variety of trailheads end up camping here. A lot of people camp near the lake even though it isn't allowed.

I’m from Chicago, so I can’t speak to what this trail is normally like. That said, it wasn’t what I expected. First, there is a long (~10 miles) gravel road that becomes more riddled with potholes all the way to the trailhead. Solid tires are a must, though you don’t really need 4WD. Next, the trailhead was packed. There were cars surplus parked a half mile in front of the trailhead. We saw hundreds of people on the trail over our 2 day stay. If this weekend is any indication, this trail is heavily, not moderately, trafficked. The trail itself is decent. You climb pretty steadily up switchbacks through the woods before emerging into a meadow that is mostly level for several miles of the trail. The meadow has a bridge that you have to cross, and that bridge is in terrible shape (uneven planks all over angled down into the river), though it is very passable. The trail is truly moderate up to Mirror Lake. If you continue up to Eagle Cap (highly recommend), the hike is a solid step above the trail’s “moderate” rating. It is steep, difficult, and highly exposed at some points. There are 2 patches of snow that are pretty easily passable. There is no shade. Bring lots of water and snacks - I didn’t and I suffered for it. The views are magnificent. Camping at mirror lake was nice. The temperature dropped to 29 overnight, which kept the bugs away. Was hoping to get a nice photo of the reflection of eagle cap on the lake, but the wind made the water too choppy for that. Nature doesn’t care what you want. Overall an awesome trail; just not what I was expecting when I scouted it for my road trip.

I’d give it six stars for the scenery if I could, but minus at least three stars for the crowds. We made a loop up West Lostine, camped at Minam Lake then Mirror Lake, and took a day hike to Eagle Cap, returning down East Lostine, about a 20mi loop all told. There are a lot of hikes on Alltrails starting from this parking lot that overlap; be sure to check reviews of other trails in the region for a complete picture. On the weekend of 8/7/2020, The already-enormous Two Pan parking lot was full & cars were parked almost half a mile up the road. We estimated we saw more than 100 other hikers & backpackers over the weekend, and at least five horse trains. A hustle for campsites made every day feel like a race. We managed to find good campsites but they had all the intimacy of car camping. The Lostine trails have been thrashed by heavy horse traffic, especially around stream crossings. By August the bugs are manageable. Definitely worth taking the side trip to Eagle Cap! Fantastic views, fantastic wildflowers, not too challenging. No snow to speak of by August. A strong runner could go from Two Pans to Eagle Cap and back in one day. Trails throughout the region are well-marked and well-maintained. I would rate the difficulty as “EASY,” definitely not “difficult.” We barely looked at the map the whole time. We navigated *one* blowdown all weekend, by stepping over it. Our three kids — the youngest was seven — did the whole weekend easily with full packs; an adult in our party with an injured hip managed just fine. The climbing is steep sometimes but about as difficult as walking up stairs.

This was a great trail! ! 5 of us hiked out from Mirror a few days ago , as an alternative to our hike in on the East Fork lostine trail . Both the EF and WF lostine trails are in great shape as of July 28. WF is way less crowded. But EF is much prettier. No snow on either trail, but lots of mosquitos

We did this 2 days ago! Mirror Lake to Eagle Cap. Trail is in great shape. There is a bit of snow on some sections (maybe 15% of the trail) but it was soft and easy to do in hiking boots. I brought my microspikes, but didn’t use them. Hiking poles are good. Views were outstanding , and totally worth the trip to the top

Hiked 7/25. Smooth sailing to Mirror Lake, then snowy up to Eagle Cap. The snow was easy to cross with poles but made navigation tricky.
