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

I went to Todd Lake with my fiancee and we hiked the trail around the lake over labor day weekend! This is a great small hike for anyone that wants to get outdoors and see some beatiful scenery and the water. The whole trail goes around the lake and opens up in the middle to a beautiful view of Mt... More

In early summer you may get your shoes somewhat wet do to snow melt, but the trail is easy and there are lovely mountain views. It's not far from Bend and a nice place to visit.

Go past Mt. Bachelor on Century Drive out of Bend. Turn into Todd Lake. Park. Take the trail around the lake. You can see what you are getting yourself into from the start. Easy! The best part of it all is the absolute jaw-drop view from everywhere.

My husband and I asked an employee at local REI about favorite hiking trails and this was suggested as a short hike (2.1 miles RT). After hiking the happy Valley trail (8mi RT) near Tumalo Falls trailhead, we decided to get back on the trail for a shorter hike as the weather was sunny and the air crisp! The cascade... More

About one and a half mile hike around a mountain lake with beautiful views. Mountain meadows with wildflowers in bloom in summer.

Another great lake to visit while visiting the Bend area. Don't forget your camera because the lakes are clear enough to see the reflections of the snow capped mountains in them. The wildflowers and wildlife is abundant and the hike around the lake is peaceful and family friendly. It takes about an hour to walk around the lake and I... More
