Only north side of butte was covered by snow. Very easy to hike. Even saw folks rode bicycles. It was impressive to see the small crater and amazing forest view.

Road is closed in winter to reach this trail.

Rented cross-country ski's with the thought we'd go around the lake. Made it down Finley Road easily, and to the junction of NF-22 and Ice Cave road. Ice Cave Road had a bit too much snow to attempt, but had a great time cross country skiing to the the lake and back. Did not see a single other person the entire day. Would highly recommend for solitude and ability to get to if there is about 8 inches of snow in Sunriver/Bend area.

Hot springs are amazing after a nice hike around the lake!

Beautiful, easy hike! We did it clockwise and would recommend doing the same. Views were beautiful! This was one of those hikes I wanted to check out earlier but didn’t because of all of the people. Not crowded at all this time of year!

Hiked it today we did and extra mile because we could find the trail head via alltrails. Great day, sunny but lots of snow but no mirco spikes needed. The views were great.

Everything is shut down but you can still park and walk up to the top. You walk a road cool views of the lava fields on the way up. Views of all the valley and cascades at the top. I can say I did it but nothing spectacular.

Visited here on 10-11-19. Short walk to the falls. Lake is close by as well.

This is fabulously unique. Definitely not your typical hike through the woods. It is short and relatively easy, but beyond the first viewpoint there are a couple of areas where you have to negotiate some big pieces of sharp obsidian almost the size of a boulder.

Paved path through otherworldly lava flow. Some Elevation, beautiful view at the top.

I would recommend this trail to anyone wanting to see large pieces of obsidian and to look at the awesome power of lava flows. Not much shade and can get pretty bright and hot during the summer. Highly recommend.

Two beautiful waterfalls. The falls are really pretty and totally worth it to visit. There is a very short hike to the bottom of the falls.

Hiked 10/5. About 2 inches snow on ground. The two steepest parts of the trail were very icy. Not bad going up, but we decided to come down on the road to avoid them on the way back. Great workout, great for our dogs. So many beautiful views. Infinitely better than just driving up there. Definitely recommend. Trail well marked. Not crowded.

We started the hike from the second parking lot. From the second parking lot, the trail is 2 miles one way meaning this trail is a little steep. When we hiked, in some parts of the trail where it is mostly in the shadow, the trail is icy. That makes it difficult to hike. So if you use micro-spikes, it will be very useful and much safer specially when you hike down. There are many fantastic viewpoints on this trail. But the view at the top (Paulina Overlook), is fabulous. Both Paulina lake and East lake are visible with the view of the Cascades and forest. It is really splendid! We were lucky that it was completely clear and sunny. If you don't want to hike, you could drive all the way up to the overlook. One of my friends drove up there and gave me a ride back down which was nice given the icy conditions of the trail.

Parking lot was closed so began hike at the campground next door. Hiked clockwise around the lake and enjoyed all of the beauty and various terrain it offered. Hot springs were cool! Only issue was a sign around 5 miles saying that the trail was closed for tree removal from the group camping area to the end of the trail. We were not about to turn around and walk 5 miles BACK so we kept going. I would suggest they place signs of trail closure at EVERY parking area. Would definitely hike again!

amazing experience! great cave, make sure to wear proper shoes and bring warm clothes ( I'd even recommend gloves). if you didn't bring a flashlight rent one. the light on your phone will not cut it!

Super interesting! I can see why dogs aren't allowed. This trail would chew up their paws.

The parking is a huge issue. I would suggest getting there at opening. It’s also smart to definitely rent the $5 light because it’s DARK and small flashlights won’t cut it. Very very slippery because of the sand on the rocks so be careful!

Pleasant, lots of trees. Easy trail to follow.

Pretty short little hike. Cool views and information stations along the way. Amazing history.

This touristy place tends to be a bit busy, but there are clearly reasons why it's so popular. It was a short wait for parking, but that's okay...better than having the cave itself backed up with people. There's a very brief, informative talk to attend before checking in to explore the cave. Heads up: don't bring anything with you, or on you, that has been in another cave or that you may want to take into some other cave. It will be explained better during the talk, but basically even 10 years after an item has been exposed to fungus in another cave, it could carry spores and spread white nose syndrome (WNS) - devastating for bats. Anyhow, it is a really cool cave. Literally, too - bring warm clothes no matter what the outside weather is like. It's a great hike for kids, though it might not be the best match for all little ones.

It was challenging without a doubt, but worth it for the views. Not a fan of the ending being a parking lot full of people taking photos and talking on their phones though, kind of sullied the feeling of accomplishment for us. Just a little too people-y up there for me.

Fun and easy cave hike. First portion of the cave has railings and grated portions for the worst of the trail. We did see quite a few people slipping and falling, so go slow over those portions and don't wear street shoes if you want traction. Some low ceilings throughout. Headlamps are a must.
