Hiking

Overall very unique hike. I would suggest going on a semi or fully sunny day so you get the full view of Hood. Our day was partly-mostly cloudy so we did get a view of hood, but could only see the snow suggesting that Mt. Jefferson was there, but couldn’t see the peak. When you’re close to the top there’s pretty good views of Trillium Lake (we think), too! Very lightly trafficked. We passed less than 15 people on the entire thing out and back. Most were not wearing masks, but it was easy to stay 6 feet away and we pulled our bandanas up. We felt safe during this hike. The beginning of the hike (.5 mile) is wide enough for a vehicle. It’s dirt/gravel and you can hear highway noise and walk along telephone poles. I was pleased that less than a mile in the highway noise was gone as were the telephone poles. We brought our dog and she did great. There is one spot about 2.75 miles in where you have to go over a pile of rocks to cross, but it’s wide and she was just fine. Rocks didn’t seem to be loose. I would say you’ll be fine unless you have an elderly dog that isn’t as great on their feet, but even so, may be just fine and it’s short so worst case you could carry them. This trail runs along a pretty heavily trafficked mountain biking trail. There was ample distance between the trails until you get about 2.5 miles up and there are a few crossing points that are well marked. The most unique part was the last mile you are walking on Timberline Ski runs. You are walking along the lifts and we saw people riding the lifts up to ski and mountain bike. Extremely unique, but a little busier once you get to the end of the trail, which is essentially Timberline lodge. The hiking trail is still very light, but there are people around the lodge for biking, skiing and exploring. We found a really nice place to have lunch on the amphitheater stage with an amazing view of the mountain. Would definitely recommend for a unique experience!

Trail is well kept and signage super clear. We went left instead of right and missed the main camp ground. It was moderate/busy on the trail. 60% of the people wear a mask. The color of lake Timothy is also amazing when the sun is out, milky turquoise.

We enjoyed this quick trail! We hiked it on July 9. It was cloudy, so we did not get a great glimpse of the mountain which was a bummer. The boardwalk is reported as closed and there really is no other way to get around the lake. There were a lot of people fishing, kayaking, and paddle boarding. Our Google maps reported the trailhead beginning 2 miles before the lake. We ended up following the signs to trillium lake and parking by the dam. The trailhead is right near the dam. Enjoy!

Timothy Lake is busy, and this trail has you hike straight through the main campground and past many campsites. But the lake’s beauty makes up for it.

The first half of the trail was fantastic. The 2nd half was all on the paved road which was a bummer. The only part that was cool on the paved section was the view of Mt Hood.

Note on the boardwalk: a portion of the boardwalk is marked as “closed for repairs”, though a frequent user of the lake told me the boardwalk has been marked that way for five years now (waiting on funding). The boardwalk is passable but certainly weak in spots. Use caution. The views from the south side of the lake are magnificent!

HikingBugsFeeGreat!

Great trail! Took the easier route, and most of the scenic views were towards the end of the hike. Saw a bit of Mt. Adams and got a cool view of the desert in the distance! Lots of different terrain/things to see throughout. Didn't notice any mosquitoes but woke up with bites the next day. The difficult route didn't seem like it would be much harder than. the easier route. If you want to get up to the top more quickly take the difficult route.

Moderate 3.5 mi total up and back. Nice, gradual climb, with one fairly steep portion towards the beginning. Wonderful views of Hood at the junction with the Timberline Trail. Great views of White River along the way. Awesome hike!!

Can you park next to the lake currently? Or do you have to hike into the lake

Trail had scenic views of Mt. Hood and nice weather. It was pretty rocky on the way up, but manageable. The trail was harder to find at the top, and it was overgrown around the ski area.

Perfect weather and everyone was out and about. Heavily trafficked with hikers but a beautiful walk around the lake. Some planks on the wooden walkway were in need of repair (hence signs).

Best to go during the summertime. The trail loop around the lake is perfect for walking while getting a beautiful 360 view of the lake and Mt. Hood. Take lots of pictures!

A beautiful hike around the lake! The northern section of the trail is temporarily closed so we just figured out way around it through the woods, but besides that very well kept and a great trail! We ended up stopping and renting a canoe from hood river outfitters who brings a pop up tent and van with boats! Great area for the whole family and lots of campsites!

I usually MTB this trail. Today I trail ran it, and it was just as pleasant. Good views and the trail is in great condition. No blow downs.

Gorgeous views! Some of the path is blocked off due to repairs needed on the decking. We went almost half way to find a barrier blocking the path, so we turned back. We wore masks when were in close proximity to others on the path, though most we encountered did not.
