Trail is quite short, but doable even if Rim Drive is closed. It's a bit of a jog walking along the road from North Junction, but the turnouts along the way (and easy off-road treks to the top of the rim from the road) leave you with plenty to look at along the way. Make sure to take your time at the bottom of the trail before heading back up, the solitude of the lake up-close is unparalleled.

Great trail to access the lake for a cold dip. Incredibly clear blue water. Bucket list worthy.


a bit touristy

Did this hike in a boot with a stress fracture. Cliff jumping was a blast and the water actually is refreshing on a cold day. Really cool to see the true blue of the lake up close, would definitely recommend everyone to do cliff jumping. It's a can't miss.

Did this trail about a year ago. Just recalled it last night to a friend who was asking where the coldest water to swim in was. This is probably it! Fun quick trail, but go in the off season.

Hiked this trail at sunset in early August and the views were truly unbelievable. Highly recommended and not to be missed.

Hiked this trail while camping at Mazama. What a beautiful hike down into this amazing canyon. The strong smell of evergreens and fresh air is something I will always remember. Stop and dip your toes in the freezing creek in the summer months.

Good hike to acclimate to altitude. Steady 1.5 miles uphill towards end is challenging for moderately healthy folks. Well marked trail.
