We took our three young grandsons on the hike to Todd Lake. We all had a wonderful time. The hike into the lake is only about 1/4 mile. I believe the hike around the lake is about 2 miles. At the far side of the lake the tadpoles were transforming into frogs. The boys thoroughly enjoyed seeing the thousands of... More

A better cross-country ski-in would be hard to beat, all within view of the landmark Mt. Bachelor. This makes it almost impossible for even newbies to Bend's backcountry to get lost. It is also gorgeous with wildflowers, birds, butterflies and deer in the summer and fall, when you can drive and park right near it. But the winter experience is... More

Todd Lake provides a place for a family with all ages of children to take a level walk around the lake. At the far end of the lake, it make have some wet areas, so wear the appropriate shoes. Also, the lake is a US Park fee area. The Lake is a must visit during the Summer months

This is a beautiful easy hike to do for any level of hiker. The water here is also very shallow and easy to swim in so don't forget your swimsuits! My kids loved catching tadpoles and frogs along the shore and swimming in the lake. Along the way they were beautiful wildflowers and picturesque views of Brokentop and Bachelor.

Easy walk to lake from parking area. Small but very scenic and places to fish off bank or launch your kayak or canoe and catch some Brook trout

The 1.4 mile hike is not difficult, but there are wet places. You may want to wear old tennis shoes or hiking boots. Go early and enjoy the pure beauty of this place. We took a picnic lunch.

Awesome walk around the lake. Nobody should stay at the beginning of the lake but walk to the other side with its beautiful flowers and meadows and little creeks winding through the green grass. Up there it might be a little muddy.
