Directions from Bend: Trail begins 30 miles west of Bend, north of the Cascade Lakes Hwy. at the Broken Top Trailhead on Forest Rd. 380. A high clearance vehicle is needed for travel beyond Todd Lake on the very rough Forest Rd. 370 (road remains gated closed until snow melts midsummer). This trail can be reached more easily on foot via the Todd Ridge Trail #25.2 and Soda Creek Trail.

Great hike, 15 miles out and back of gorgeous scenery from Todd Lake.

Did this hike a few days ago. New to backpacking, lots of lessons learned. Needed sunscreen from the reflection of the snow, better eye protection than just sunglasses, as sunglasses still let the light in to the sides of your eyes, and the day we went on, the sun was 75°, so on our way back, it was miserable trying to track through 2 ft of melted snow. The gate is closed off at NF-370, so it adds quite a few mikes to the hike if you go NF-370 to NF-380 to start.

Started at Todd Lake trailhead, so approximately 7 miles 1 way, with 2100ft elevation gain. This hike was spectacular. The wildflowers, creek, little waterfalls, and picturesque mountains along the trail were delightful. The views from Broken Top are incredible, and the glacier lake is stunning. The trail from Todd Lake to the Broken top trail junction is a fairly easy hike. The last 2-3 miles are the steepest, but not difficult. You will spend a lot of time in the sun, but also walking through snow. Able to see the Oregon cascades, Hood and Rainier.
