You can hike around it, but it is muddy on the far end. You can also ski or hike from the Mt. Bachelor parking lot where you can leave your car, or in the small lot, on the left of Century Drive & ski or hike up the trail which leads to the Broken Top trailhead.

This area is gorgeous year round. My favorite time is in the winter - cross country ski into the lake, then make your way around the lake. Pack a lunch & enjoy the incredible scenery!

Went here en route to Crater Lake, so decided to go around several of the lakes. This one had lovely views of the mountains, and an easy walk around the lake if you wanted, or just a nice place to have a picnic. Worth a detour.

Todd Lake is about 22 miles from Bend, the first lake past Mt. Bachelor. It is a small pond shaped lake nestled at the base of Broken Top. It's the first left past Dutchman's Flat. About 1/2 mile off the road, easily accessible by truck or BMW. There is a Parking lot ( small ) and a short walk (... More

This is my "go to lake" for a quick easy hike in Bend. Just beyond Mt. Bachelor on Cascade Lakes Highway, this is the perfect place to bring kids, grandparents, dogs, etc. The trail circles the lake and is almost completely flat.

The short hike into Todd Lake is very nice for all age groups and for those with less mobility. Even the pit bathroom is adorable. It looks like a small cottage.

Just a short drive of 30 minutes will get you to the trailhead for a short walk to this beautiful lake. Bring your camera. In the winter you can snowshoe or cross country ski to this lake.

After the four of us went up the ski lift at Mt Bachelor we drove over to Todd Lake since we had seen it from the top of Mt Bachelor. The parking area had plenty of cars and some people were carrying fishing poles up to the lake. As we started walking from the parking area to the lake we... More

I wish I had spent more time here! This is an easy walk around the lake, and it is beautiful. There was not a lot of other people there either, which made it also nice and peaceful. There were still some snow drift on the ground, which my dogs got a kick out of and they loved running up and... More
