We joined a couple of friends for a snow shoe trek around the Trillium Lake XC Ski Loop. Trail is clearly marked: one side for skiers the other for trekking. It is a magical trip though a snow covered forest that surrounds a beautiful alpine lake on gently rolling terrain. Total trip is 4.4 miles from the parking area just... More

We took a weekend to come out to the Portland area. We had a very peaceful hike in the snow to Trillium Lake.

We had gone to Mt. Hood and totally enjoyed our day. Coming done and heading back to the hotel we saw a sign and made the detour. It was well worth it. What a beautiful,quit,restful spot. There are some picnic tables,there is of course hiking on the trails and fishing which a couple of people where doing on our visit.

This place is absolutely beautiful - clear water that reflects nearby Mt Hood. Great fishing (most days). But overrun like a hotel swimming pool when the weather is nice. If you wish tranquility you will need to hike into alpine lakes.

Great place to just chill out and fully relax. Nice, clean campground that is very family friendly. We love to go with our grandchildren and niece and her family. We always have a great time. The fishing is pretty good too.

An easy drive up the mountain and you're in heaven! The lake is amazing. You can hike around it, go swimming, bring a lunch and eat at the picnic tables, or even camp out. Easily at least a day's worth of fun and probably more.

I went in October, during the off season and had to park and walk from the gate. The resort didn't seem to mind and someone came out and asked if I had any questions.

This is a beautiful area year round. It has great cross country skiing trails around the lake and close by area. Parking area off the highway.

Stopped here on the way back from Bend. It was a perfect spot to step out and stretch our legs. It's a 2 mile walk around the lake and has a very easy walking path. Lots of people fishing, boating and camping which is understandable because there is an absolutely stunning view of Mt. Hood
