Other than parking (I swear there is only about 7 parking spots at the trail head), this was really a wonderful hike. The hike up to the lake is switchbacks all the way up, but the loop around the lake is so wonderful. Because of the smoke from the wildfires, Mt Hood view was mostly obscured, but I imagined the beauty of the view on a clear day. The trail is very wide and well packed. We had some friends that wanted more of a strenuous hike and distance so they continued on to Tom Dick & Harry Mountain and they were not disappointed. We had to park about a mile away at Ski Bowl and that walk up the hill next to the highway was awful. Overall every enjoyable hike.

Beautiful trail and amazing view of Mt. Hood at the top.

Started doing the mirror lake trail and then ended up doing both Tom Dick and Harry and mirror lake. Nice switchbacks and beautiful views. Well worth it to do both.

Agree, more on difficult side. Not long but steep switchbacks. Views at top were good, but limited due to smoke at the time.

falls running fast. Not a loop like the map implies.
