Trillium Lake is tranquil, peaceful spot, just a couple miles off the main highway. It undoubtedly provides great views of Mt. Hood.... IF the mountain is not obscured by clouds. If it's cloudy, the lake is still nice, but nothing very special. In such instances,...More

Walked around the lake - 2 miles. Very well maintained pathways. View of Mt Hood is breathtaking. Did not fish but many were. Still some camping even in late September.

Beautiful view of Mt. Hood! Great place for a serene leisure day. Bring your own boat, paddle board, or kayak if you want to get on the lake. Picnic tables are numerous. The hiking trail around the lake is pretty but one section is "temporarily...More

It locates just a few miles from Timberline Lodge so you should not miss this beautiful lake. Fishing, kayaking or hiking are good. Don’t be late in the afternoon (especially on weekend) because it was hard to find a parking lot. And prepare 5$ in...More

We had the pleasure of visiting Trillium Lake the day after 4th of July. It was packed with people enjoying the good weather, but it is big enough, that we weren't bothered. Good for the whole family. Always check the weather first, we tried to...More
