  • A nice ride through the forests to trillium lake. It's look a lot fresher than you might expect. Make sure to use a coat or sweater with you. Beautiful views of the Lake and mount hood.

  • Very beautiful place. It can be a little busy in the afternoons and evenings, but most of the people are polite and considerate. We took our rafts there and had fun peacefully drifting around the lake. Great view of Mount Hood! Nice little docks and lots of little fish jumping for if you want to go fishing.
  • Good spot to watch Mt.Hood. Road from the main road to the lake could closed in winter due to the heavy snow covered, the map will not show this but it’s still accessible by foot. If you want to reach there to watch the sunrise, arrive there as early as possible by 35 minutes at least.
  • Nice long snow hike as evening fell - we started out from the parking lot at around 2, tromped down the hill in time to watch dusk settle over the lake. Saw lots of snow animals reminiscent of Donnie Darko and added a snow gnome to accompany them. Pretty perfect place when it's not totally overrun.
  • Great place to spend time outdoors. During winter months the road and campgrounds are closed to drive in. You can park just off Highway 26 and hike in to get to the lake. On clear weather days you can witness awesome views of Mt. Hood. Great hiking and fishing. Even several different spots for rock climbing just a short hike away.
  • Often a busy location, Trillium is a great hike year round (groomed snow trails in winter may require snow shoes after a storm, come prepared for the season). The view across the lake is amazing on a clear day. Just remember you need snopark in the winter and NW Forest or $5 in the summer for parking.
