Great hiking. The forest service was very helpful. We did Ne
Mirror Lake and zigzag trail. Both were very family-friendly.

Stop at the NFS rangr station - all the trail maps and adivce you could want. Mt. Hood is visible from most trails - long or short - altitude climbs are clear on the trail maps. Wish the trails were marked with distances to go to destination.

This is a lovely area for driving and there is good accessible hiking in the area. We went to Trillium Lake - gorgeous views and a nice trail around the lake.

We always enjoy this area and its incredible beauty! The lakes are pristine, forests lush, people friendly, water warm enough for late summer swimming and frozen enough to ski over in the winter... please always pick up trash if you ever see it out there so we keep it pretty for our kids :D

Mainly drove through, but stopped occasionally in this beautiful area. Wish we had more time to spend there - worth the time if in the area!
