Went 5.24.20 and couldn’t make it b/c snow on road ~2 miles before trail head. I saw some raised jeeps make their way into the snow but if you don’t have a raised car it’s not accessible right now

Super crowded by the parking area. The meadow loop is well worth the extra .5 miles.

absolutely beautiful, however this lake is so overcrowded that you don't feel like you are in the woods. very limited day use parking and lots of loud people.

Took a few days to visit Mount Adams at Takhlakh Lake. The snow is semi melted so the roads are passable in any vehicle (we made it in a prius). Hardly saw any other people which was great. Took a 1.1 mile hike around the lake which is rated as great for families but half of the trail is covered in snow, some places a few inches amd others a few feet so it can be hard to find the trail at this time. We also did the offshoot trail of about the same distance up to Goat rocks to see views of Mount Rainier. Camp ground officially opens on the 22nd of June.

My fiancé and I had our first camping trip here. We ended up having to change to barbless hooks because we would catch our limit of trout within an hour! So beautiful. The hike is pretty easy, a fun look you can take two times a day. Would recommend bug spray, or lots of citronella!

Go beyond what you think is the end of the trail and you will be rewarded with Takhlakh Meadows. A great easy hike from the lake, we took a 3 and 6 year old with us, but I carried the 3 year old over the Lava Flows.

Great hike and camping. Bring bug spray as the Mosquitos are thick most of the summer.

This was an easy trail, so it's perfect to bring the kids along. Beautiful lake with camping and fishing. Boats without gas motors are allowed. When the lake is still, you can get a beautiful picture of Mt. Adams reflcting.
