Winopee Lake Trail is a 13.4 mile out and back trail located near La Pine, Oregon that features a lake and is rated as difficult. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is best used from June until December.
Directions from Bend: Travel 46 miles west and south on Cascade Lakes Highway (46), then west on F.S. Rd. 4635 for 3 miles to reach the Winopee Trailhead.
I started at the Cultus Lake trailhead for the Winopee Lake trail. Beautiful spots along the trail to jump into Cultus lake. Trail is dense forest and very dusty. I turned off of the Winopee lakes trial to go to Teddy Lakes. I did not track it but guess it was about 9 miles out and back. I highly recommend Teddy Lakes. Beautiful secluded lake. Train ends but about 300 feet east along the lake is a site all prepped for backpacking. Awesome swim!!!
I hiked this trail from Cultus Lake up to the Snoeshow Lake trail. Muskrat Lake is a great camping spot as there is a feeder stream on the north side.
Hiked about 3 1/2 miles up this trail. It follows along the eastern edge of Cultus Lake and then veers further north. A variety of wildflowers in bloom, but the trail is very dusty and heavily wooded.
