Lovely easier trail with views of lake and over lava beds as well as through forested trails.

Gorgeous, but challenging for a run in the summer. I went on a 90 degree afternoon and found the asphalt lava rock portions to be sheer drudgery. Not too crowded on a Monday morning. Couldn't find where the map said the trail forks off into the McKenzie trail, but that's probably on me.

The lake is beautiful but the trail is not for mountain bikes. The portion that is the Clear lake trail is gentle and easy but the middle is the McKenzie trail and found ourselves caring our bikes

varied type of trail - from paved to volcanic to a peaceful forest hike. I enjoyed it . The scenery is beautiful and it didn't seem heavily traveled.

Kid and dog friendly trail. Beautiful blue water.

Great trail. Very well maintained. loved the underwater forest.

Easy hike that is great for the dogs and family. We went May 13th and there was some snow on the trail. Beautiful mix of blue water, the "Great Spring", lava rock, and wildlife.

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.

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.

We like to start at Clear Lake Resort and hike North around the lake. Easy hike most of the way. You will hike thru an old lave flow on the East side of the lake. Some loose lava rock and can get very hot in the summer. Bring your water bottle. Beautiful views of the Three Sister's. And the lake's color is amazing. A nice bridge takes you over the start of the McKenzie river on the south end. Plan about 2.15 hours for this hike.
