Trillium Lake is tranquil, peaceful spot, just a couple miles off the main highway. It undoubtedly provides great views of Mt. Hood.... IF the mountain is not obscured by clouds. If it's cloudy, the lake is still nice, but nothing very special. In such instances,...More

Walked around the lake - 2 miles. Very well maintained pathways. View of Mt Hood is breathtaking. Did not fish but many were. Still some camping even in late September.

Easily accessible. We had a very calm morning so reflection in the lake was great. Easy hike around the lake.

Beautiful view of Mt. Hood! Great place for a serene leisure day. Bring your own boat, paddle board, or kayak if you want to get on the lake. Picnic tables are numerous. The hiking trail around the lake is pretty but one section is "temporarily...More

It locates just a few miles from Timberline Lodge so you should not miss this beautiful lake. Fishing, kayaking or hiking are good. Don’t be late in the afternoon (especially on weekend) because it was hard to find a parking lot. And prepare 5$ in...More

Where to take my relatives May 3 to 8 (9 Replies)
Relatives are coming to Portland next week. Since they are arriving late and leaving early, we really only have 3 days with them. What should we do with them during that time? They wouldn't be impressed with Multnomah Falls as where they are from, they have a bunch of waterfalls. Is Trillium Lake good to hike this time of year? Is Mt. St Helens too cold and wet? We'll do one day trip to the beach, take them to eat at the food stalls. They'll be staying near the waterfront so can...More

Added the numbers wrong. We have 4 full days with them. Also, we are willing to drive around Oregon is that helps though 4 days isn't much time.

Snowshoeing Mt. Hood (11 Replies)
Does anyone have any recommendations on a good beginner snowshoeing trail on Mt. Hood. Haven't been in years, and want to start out slow. May or may not have one of my kiddos along as well. I was thinking maybe Trillium Lake. Anyone else have any ideas?

Trillium is a perfect spot for an easy snowshoeing trip:) I also like all along the White River, but for your first time back at it, Trillium is perfect.

Trillium lake campground (6 Replies)
I am trying to book a campsite at Trillium lake campground on a weekend. They are fully booked for the next few weeks. There are some sites available for walk-in only, first come first serve. Anyone has an experience walking-in? How likely are they going to be full? Can we book an RV site without having an RV? Is there grille available on each site? Thanks, folks.

They will be very likely full. It is very popular. You may enjoy Lost Lake Campground. Many photographers go there as well. Best regards MrsO
