Cougar Woods Loop is a relatively short loop that shows off the scenery in La Pine State Park. I have hiked this trail a few times over the years, but this was the first time with GPS. The trail has apparently changed since it was originally mapped by Open Street Maps, but the route is relatively close in most sections. My route matches the official park trail map on site very closely. Watch for side paths along the river to take in more scenery and add to the distance slightly. All the trails in La Pine State Park are connected, and a longer hike can be experienced by chaining together some of the loops. For a state park, the trails are not usually crazy crowded. There are a campground and day use area in the park as well.

Nothing spectacular, just a good long day hike! We started by the little store and had about 17 miles of mostly uphill hiking before a 4 mile downhill. Views were hindered by smoke as well.

I did the piece between Lucky Lake and Cultus Lake. Nice trail. Lots of blowdowns in June. Mostly flat, easy trail. Could be a nice day hike from the Lucky Lake trailhead to Cultus Lake and back.

We hiked the 6 mile section from The Twins trailhead north east to Charlton Lake. Quite a bit of elevation gain and loss until you end up at the lake, but there are some beautiful campsites right on the lake. The mosquitoes were almost no issue but the bees were quite active.
