Dec 2017 hasn't been kind with it's snow but it was still a beautiful walk into the lake. It's a nice ~4 mile hike from the Mt. Bachelor ski area.

If you want to hike, picnic and have great views this is a good place to have all three. You can go around the lake but if it is wet the far end can be squishy. Lovely seasonal wildflowers.

We visited in early spring when the trees and wild flowers were in full bloom. The lake was calm and the sky was blue...heaven. Good fishing too.

The cascade high way is closed in the winter; however, it's not far from bachelor so they may have the road open. Check online maps. Thanks :)
