Easy hike but not a stroll. There is a lot of uneven terrain (stumps, roots, rocks, mud). The bugs were pretty bad but not intolerable. Absolutely gorgeous hike, a lot of places to sit and take in the view. Oh and it was closer to 4 miles via our GPS hike tracker

Easy walk around a beautiful lake. Many opportunities for pictures. The bugs were fierce but it was still worth it.

would have been a 5 but the back side is not nearly as well kept as the front. great walk, easy to do, beautiful scenery both during the hike and on the drive, very enjoyable! there is a day use fee to access the park. no bathrooms or trash once you are on the loop.

Easy trail and mostly flat for approx 1/2 of the loop. We started at the boathouse area and headed towards the amphitheater and boat launch then started the loop. There were a few areas on the other side of the lake where we had to traverse water and muddy areas, but it was easily manageable and we mostly avoided the muck. At the start there were several campsites and people hanging out fishing, etc., but not once we got to the top of the lake. There were a fair amount of people out on the trail and a lot of dogs. People were friendly and courteous, as were the dogs.

Easy walk around the lake , some decent views. The terrain is very easy to cover. Lots of interesting camping and fishing spots. The general store and boat rental place is nice.

Such an inspiring place to be, silence and serenity and freezing temperatures. Luckily the sun welcomed us at Lost Lake.
We had to park our car 3 miles down the mountain because of snow. But it was worth the hike.

Nice walk. Just be aware there are times when the trail is almost the lake.

I'd go back. Hood was beautiful, lake was nice to take a dip in! Glacier run off. Overly 'refreshing'.

Beautiful walk around a small lake. Plenty of pines to offer shade, and boardwalks to keep you from wet muddy areas. View of Mt Hood is to die for! Beware though that this is not a quiet peaceful walk because of the resort. Parking nightmare and lots of noise from people on, in and around the lake

I wouldn't call it hiking. Nice and relaxing though. Lots of wood bridges.

Nice mountain trail without much elevation gain. Fallen timber in some spots but we were able to get over/under/through all of it. Beautiful views of Mt Hood from north shore of the lake.

We enjoyed the Lost Lake loop trail with our kids, about 3.2 of easy trail with views of majestic Hood. There were huckleberries lining the lake and lots of lake critters. It gets busy in the summer but there are some other more challenging hikes out here like buck peak.
