Much longer hike than the 1.6 miles listed. The larger loop and loop along the shore totaled about 7.5 miles!! Great hike though! Lots of people with snow shoes but it was a nice packed trail and they weren’t really needed. We used ice spikes but we would have been fine in just boots. Can’t wait to do this again in the summer months!

My favorite place of all time. Absolutely magical!! The lake is so pretty this time of the year and the hike around it is breathtaking. In love!! Already cannot wait to go back.

Packed ice but still beautiful and decided to use the new snow shoes but you could do it without.

Beautiful day on the mountain. View from south end of lake and Mt Hood is iconic!

Intended on snowshoeing but wound up leaving them in the car and just hiked in our boots. There was quite a bit of snow but it was pretty packed down. There were a lot of people but it is a long enough trail that people were pretty spread out. It was an easy hike but due to the difficulties of walking on the snow we broke a sweat!

Lots of traffic but a beautiful refreshing hike!

Went snowshoeing yesterday and it was amazing! Parking lot got full pretty fast, I got there at 8 and I had the trail to myself. You will definitely need snowshoes or crampons. The lake is frozen and the view is just amazing.

Road is closed to the lake so it’s about a 1.7 mile extra walk. Totally worth it. It’s beautiful there this time of year

Went with the dog pack and they loved it. It was snowy and in some places there was a little deeper snow but over all easy trail.

Such a beautiful place for a view of Mount Hood! The lake itself is breathtaking as well. Wait for the sun to start coming down and you'll get an awesome reflection of the mountain's peak in the water. The loop isn't necessary to do if you're just there for the view. The best vantage point is right at the beginning.

It gets busier as the day goes on! Get there early to claim your spot.

I've only done this trail in the winter snowshoeing from the parking lot down the trail head. Highly recommend if you are new to snowshoeing. Had a wonderful time trekking down to the lake.

Beautiful trail! Very easy hike. Lots of different micro climates around the lake made the hike that much more interesting.
