great trail! worth the hike is suggest wearing hiking boots or sneakers. I wore chacos and my feet were fine just SUPER dirty at the end.
carry lots of water with you!
if you go on a warm /hot day wear swim gear so you go in the lake.

Road is open and some snow on parts of trail. Extremely muddy in the meadow. Wildflowers are just starting to bloom.

amazing but if you want solitude don'g go between Friday-Sunday.

Yeah it’s an easy walk around and it can be crowded but, come on, it’s beautiful and you can swim. But if you want to add some spice bushwhack up the ridge at the far end of the lake. It a hard climb but worth it. At the top turn left and go just about as far as you can. You will be rewarded by the most breathtaking views of Broken Top and S Sister ever. Then a quick trip down (you can’t miss the lake) and you earned your swim. The hike up and down is steep so you flip flops are not going to cut it. Be prepared.

Excellent hike! Great views of the Cascades! Forest at the beginning, open ski run for part of the middle, eventually getting to some volcanic rock towards the top.

totally awesome. totally kicked my butt. super windy and cold at the top if you go before noon so bring a layer. loved it!!! has everything--forest, desert, and fun rock scramble. took me 2.5 hours.

Pretty walk under trees and along the river (try your luck with poles and rodes with artificial lures). *There is another parking lot closer to the falls.

Falls are more what I consider class 4 - 5 rapids. I was a bit disappointed. It was also hard to find a good place to take pictures.

Bring the whole fam for this one! Mee-Maw and Pop-Pops? They can nail this utterly flat 1.7mi. LIttle cousin Timmy? He won't even need coddling or an extra juicebox to complete this tourist-laden lakeside loop. And fat Aunt Sharon? She'll recall days of yore when it was just "Shari" as she mobs around this short loop like the spritely cross-country runner she was back in college.

It's flat, dead-easy, and on weekends the parking lot is a circuis. Is Multnomah Falls your jam? Cool. Then so is the Tood Lake Loop Trail.

But maybe when at Multnomah Falls you're all "eff this." Maybe you tend more towards the 16mi Larch Mountain trail up and out of M. Falls? If so, then check out the 15-17 mellow miles of the Todd Lake/Soda Creek/Brokentop Trail that ends above the ridge at No Name Lake. It starts here and, well, "it good."

But if you're into kids, tourists, dogs, and "RV people," well, then the Todd Lake Loop Trail may be your Valhalla.

Really enjoyed this hike.

Hard route out, moderate on the way back. Worth the invest in sweat and shoes filled with rock for the view and the crystal clear lake. Next time, we’ll plan and pack better to do the summit trail.

Starts off pretty moderate but gets tougher once you're past the top of Sunrise. It's also all exposed after then, so pack some sunscreen. There are some loose rocks and soft dirt towards the top, but it's all manageable. The views are stunning and totally worth it!

Easy and beautiful hike around the lake. Bring layers - when the wind picks up it can be chilly in the shade even on a day that is hot at lower altitude. Given that, it is a great place to go to get a break from the heat.

Gorgeous hike. Had a nice snack at the lake once we got there. I'd suggest going early. We go up there at 7am and it wasn't too crowded. Started heading down again after 9am & passed a lot of people coming up, parking lot was packed when we got down & lots of cars parked on the road leading in.

Great hike. Our 20 month old was able to walk around. The views are awesome and the lake is worth going.

Great hike with great views, and a nice break from summer temps up top.

This is a fantastic 3mile round trip hike. It is beautiful all along the trail and you are rewarded with several spots to view the fabulous deschutes rapids. If you are hiking, be mindful of mountain bikers on the trail, as this is a popular spot for biking as well.

The trail is easy walking and there is a pit stop right before heading towards the falls. Perfect for a break or a spot to eat lunch or a snack.

Enjoy this amazing hike and all the beauty Central Oregon has to offer.

Great first hike. Beautiful scenery.

absolutely gorgeous hike. the mile and a half or so uphill is definitely a workout, especially if you get swarmed by insects like I did (bring bugspray) but once you hit the top and it levels out to a view of south sister, you forget about all that cardio and get energized toward the lake. the lake is a beautiful place to enjoy lunch or a break, make sure to tread lightly. there are overnight camping spots at the lake. it was so gorgeous there we actually considered going back down to get our camping gear to bring back up for the night. we didnt, but will next time. a timeless hike, really. you could base camp at the lake to summit south sister pretty easily, too.

Super easy hike for our three young hikers. Beauty surrounds from the views afar to the ones under your feet. We were surrounded by butterflies, flowers and millions of tadpoles!!! Highly recommend for young family's or even just someone needing a break from the every day errands in life.

As always - a good hike with great views. Glissaded down about 1000 feet. So fun. Total time 5h.

Awesome views of lake and mt bachelor. Easy hike with lovely wildflowers and trickling streams

Completed as a quick overnight. Arrived late afternoon on the Saturday and was quite surprised that we were able to get a parking spot. Most people were day hikers and were leaving as we were headed up. The mosquitoes were out in full force, but our bug spray kept most away. Pretty views of the sunset glow on Broken Top and sunrise glow on South Sister.

It was awesome, minus the mosquitos! We forgot bug repellent so that is on us. We plan to do this one again soon.

Wonderful scenery in a old growth Douglas Fir forrest. Still snow on the trail on July 3rd. Moraine Lake is gorgeous and provides breath taking views. Definitely worth going.

It was a great hike! Did it with a 20 lb pack and it wasn’t too bad (I’m new to hiking) The trail is maintained very well and the lake is beautiful from every angle. Plan to do again and hammock out over night!

Great hike. Views were worth the pain!
