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

It was CRAZY crowded with families picnicking, floating, and generally hanging out and enjoying the lake. To be expected; it's such a cool park. However, after navigating the crowds, it turns out the trail is actually closed with tape blocking the path after part of the way around - but the lady that collected our money at the entrance didn't tell us. We ran into several other people searching for a way around and none of us could find it. When we got back and mentioned to the lady working that she may want to tell people, she said it had been closed all year and everyone ignored the tape and just continued around so we were only her second complaint all summer. But the final deal-breaker for me was all the poopy toilet paper (literally) and trash the squatters left in their make-shift campsites - which we were tromping through trying to find a way around the closed trail. Gross!!! I would come back to picnic, but definitely not to walk.

A nice little loop of a trail, very flat and accessible. There are beautiful views of Mt. Hood. It's a fun lake for a swim in the summer.

Beautiful scenery and view of the mount hood! Very short hike around the lake! And super duper crowded with kids and boat with laud music! But if you get the time to do it on weekdays where it's more quite then it'll be more relaxing! Definitely worth it!

There were a good bit of families and folks out, but everyone was respectful of the path.

There's construction underway on the back third of the loop, apparently a lot of the boards on the walkway are rotting, so the trail is closed in that area.

This trail is very easy and more a long walk than hike. It was a very short walk but worth the drive. The trail is very well maintained. The views are wonderful and the lake is beautiful. Great place to bring the kids and dogs!

Went in the summer, it was super crowded with locals swimming and hanging out around the lake. Not a great trail if you want to hike in the wilderness, but a good spot to bring the kayak or canoe as there's a small boat ramp.
