Great hike around a beautiful clear lake. A bit rocky around the back side in bits but very doable. Definitely longer than 5 miles stated on the app. We clocked around 6.5 miles.

The views are great. The hike wasn’t actually as hard as we thought until the very end. Definitely a hike to do in the early morning as the end is in full song.

The views are amazing!

Awesome trail! 3rd time we’ve hiked it...normally we go in the fall but decided to try it today. We did find one very small snowfield which our dog enjoyed. Additionally we found several varieties of wild flowers in bloom which was a nice treat. The views were spectacular....Mt Bachelor all the way to Mt Hood! One of our favorite hikes in all of Central Oregon and highly recommend it if you only have time for one hike.

Stunning views and lots of butterflies! Bring water and bug spray

Don’t forget your sunscreen. Two of the creek crossings were a bit more than anticipated but the views and serenity were well worth my wet shoes.

A solid little hike mostly flat and in trees till you reach eagle rock. Check your map because there are lots of forks and roads along the way. The view of the mountains at eagle rock is great!

Did this hike yesterday, a Wednesday. There was a lot of cars at the trailhead but they seemed to mostly be at the lake. We only passed three groups the entire hike! The view at the very top is well worth the climb, but go expecting a fairly consistent uphill walk for at least 2 miles out of the 3 up. Beautiful views, wildlife and flowers- but wear bug spray! We got eaten alive!

My family spent a lot of time here when I was a kid but I never got to hike around until now. Great little hike. A lot of places on the highway side for hiking buddies to play in the water. I don't care for walking through the camp sites but that's the trail.

The burned section was long. Views were fabulous on the way out. Bugs at the lakes

Was beautiful early June with minimal snow. Bugs were thick and good fishing in the lake!

Such a beautiful hike! Start early and beat the crowd and the heat.

Completed this today with three kids and two dogs. The trail is straight forward and offers great views throughout the Three Creeks Lake region, the greater Sisters area, and up to 11 peaks. Today we saw into Washington and at the rim point had everything from Bachelor to Adams. The trail is dusty and exposed so better in morning or later afternoon. Bring lots of water and if you have dogs be sure they are leashed at the top due to the trail going right next to a 500+ foot cliff face. The hike affords great views and are awarded all the time. Once at the top of the ridge, it is flat until the final pitch up to the point. In the end, be sure to cool your feet in Three Creeks Lake. This time of year shows lots of alpine lupin, butterflies, and blue skies.

Beautiful views! Go early as it gets hot and the butterflies come out...like really come out!!

Gorgeous hike around an amazing "clear" lake! We clocked it at 7.2 (easy) miles, not 5. We had 5 kids with us, ages 3 1/2, to 10 years old and they all did great.

Stunning views at the top! And the butterflies were thick! Steady up not too strenuous. Very little snow to navigate. One of my favorite hikes to date.

beautiful! my favorite lake

Hiked yesterday and went about a mile and a half past the sign that says “Trail not maintained” to get to the spot where the view ranged from BrokenTop to Jefferson. Spectacular! So about 8 miles round trip. I’m sure we could have seen Hood on a clear day but threatening clouds were prevalent. Mosquitoes were a problem in the beginning and end of hike below tree line - bring repellent! Lots of snow fields on top but we only lost the trail once and were able to pick it back up without too much trouble. Only encountered a few other hikers.

I must have made a mistake somewhere, because my phone tracked me at over 7 miles doing this hike! Started at the resort and went down to where the bridge goes left and then on the side with the lava rocks and all the way around. It was a sunny day until we got caught in a hailstorm for about 5 minutes. So cool! You see forest, a BLUE BEYOND BLUE cove, lava rocks, and more. The variation in scenery was incredible. But I wasn't prepared to go that long...did I make a wrong turn?

Awesome views the whole way but getting to both gold lake and green lakes are currently still snowed in wouldn’t attempt to do this till July as the temperature dropped to 25 overnight

Great hike. Still some snow but easy to navigate through and around. Mosquitos are brewing so come prepared. Amazing views!

Super pretty scenery! A little under 5 mile trail loop - completed in 2 hours at a steady pace with plenty of water and picture breaks. Part of the trail goes through lava beds (some crushed lava) so walking with small kids or a dog might be tough, although we saw lots of dogs. The trail is well maintained. No motorized boats on the lake. Entertaining to watch people fishing, canoeing, and kayaking from the trail. Very peaceful.

Absolutely gorgeous hike! Still a ton of snow which made it difficult to stay on the exact trail but the adventuring was fun trying to find it as we went along. We brought snowshoes and poles and were super glad we did after we got about one mile in. Highly encourage you start early in the day as most of the trail is exposed to the sun.

Beautiful views at he top and it’s worth the hike to get there are see them. Easy morning is best in summer to avoid crowds. Will be doing this hike again, beautiful and fabulous exercise. Would plan 3-4 hours.

The snow was almost knee deep in some places, but our waterproof boots kept us dry. We started at the store and headed West through the picnic area. The views are gorgeous, we saw all kinds of birds. There’s a point several hours in where you could almost throw a pebble and hit the store, so you might think your hike is winding down. The trail continues way past the East end of the Lake with an incredible river bridge and a blue pool. Take plenty of snacks and water. We can’t wait to come back in the summer for a whole new experience.

One of my favorite hikes! Went in early July, great views with lots of butterflies and blooming flowers! Bit of an incline to the top but it’s well worth it.

Nice walk around the lake. Mellow enough to take it as a stroll. Friend and I went in mid-January on a clear blue sky day. Though we started the hike at 1pm we could still admire the crystal clear water, finished around 4:30. Can't wait to go back again and admire it on a bright summer day!
