Description

The Trillium Lake Trail goes around Trillium Lake and through Trillium Lake Campground. Many a postcard photo of Mt Hood is taken from along this trail. The trail crosses wetlands that provide bird watching opportunities. Its distance and easier difficulty level make it a great family hike, particularly for those with strollers or with limited mobility. This trail was build to be barrier free. While hikers would describe it as flat, there are a couple of short grades of under 5%. The trail surface is a combination of wooden boardwalk and very finely compacted rock. There are a few benches along the trail. The trail begins and ends at the Trillium Lake dam. A different trail, Trillium Lake Loop Trail, is a winter trail that utilizes the closed roads in winter months to provide a cross-country ski, snowshoe and snowmobile opportunity.

Regulations & Leave No Trace Information: The trail was designed for hiking and to be fully accessible for those with limited mobility. To maintain this accessibility, bicycles are not allowed on most of the trail. In the campground there are many young children with bicycles that may not recognize that they are on an official no bikes trail. Please adhere to the no bicycles once out the immediate campground section. Leave No Trace Principles ?? Plan Ahead and Prepare ?? Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces ?? Dispose of Waste Properly ?? Leave What You Find ?? Minimize Campfire Impacts ?? Respect Wildlife ?? Be Considerate of Other Visitors.
