A mellow and easy forest hike or snowshoe a little over a mile west of Government Camp. Easy and for everyone, this hike gets you to mirror lake and offers fantastic views of Mt. Hood.

07/23/17. If you're motivated to enjoy the serene lake reflection of Mt. Hood, better plan to do this one very early. The trail is well maintained and easy, but also heavily traveled. Parking at the trailhead is limited to about twenty spots. I had to park over at Ski Bowl, which was about a mile west. The good thing is that there is a path to walk back toward the trailhead that is behind the highway guard rails and a safe distance from the traffic.

Short, easy hike with an amazing vie at the end. You need to stop for a $5 permit before you get there, or else you'll have to backtrack to Zigzag.

Great views of the river and waterfall but some dogs are not on leashes unfortunately and some places are a bit narrow and slippery. Also the turns are pretty scary at the 7 to 8 switchbacks so don't look down.
