Beautiful hike! The first few miles are a steady uphill climb with the Lostine River raging nearby. There are a few stream crossings and a pristine glacial valley. Lots of mosquitos at the lake in early July! Campsites are plentiful.

Attempted it on November 3rd 2017 - We made it about 6 miles in until we wished we had snowshoes. If you're wondering what conditions are like, snow was at knee level and it's getting worse at the 5-6 mile point. With the right equipment you'll have fun. Really look forward to doing it next summer!

Beautiful area with good elevation gain. Once off of the main trail onto Copper Creek Trail proper, I only met about 5 people (went in July on a weekend). There are two required stream crossings so make a decision to go through barefoot or run wet. Last mile or so is tougher mainly due to 7000+ foot elevation. Still had some snow, not much wildlife. The only confusing part was the mileage; I went 6.6 miles up but wasn't at the crossing so perhaps the CCT was described as 13.2 miles NOT counting the 3 mile first section. Mosquitos were rare as long as you keep moving. For barefoot runners, I did over 2 miles without problem.

update April 15, 2017. Road to trailhead is impassable. Trees down and even my 4x4 couldn't get closer than 6 miles from entrance. plan accordingly.

Dry! No water on this trail. Pretty difficult climb up to a ridge and then.,,,the lake is 500' below in a cirque. After 8 miles straight up didn't feel like climbing down and then back up to the ridge.

Great Hike up to a beautiful pristine lake.
It's been a while since I hiked this but from what I remember most of the hike is on the side of a steep mountain (so narrow trail) and you gain a lot of elevation (7000ft I think) so the trail is also kinda steep for a beginner.
At the lake there is a wonderful large grassy area to put lots of tents if you go in a group.
Don't forget to take the extra climb up to the top of Eagle Cap above the lake. What a view!

Because there are a lot of Mirror Lakes, google "mirror lake in eagle cap wilderness" to see pictures of this beautiful spot.
