I was blown away by the quiet location and spectacular views of Mt Hood. We stopped for a short while but next time we visit, we will check out the campground. Just beautiful!

Very nice hike, beautiful reflection of Mount Hood in the lake. Would recommend for those with children or those looking for a shorter, easy hike.
