This hike has gorgeous views of Sparks Lake, South Sister, and Broken Top. The trail parallels the edge of the lake and then winds through a thick lodgepole pine forest and past interesting lava flows. You will also have nice views of Mount Bachelor midway through the hike. This hike is a must-do if you crave beautiful lake and mountain views. This loop hike takes you past scenic Sparks Lake and through a pine forest with interesting lava outcroppings. The trail is paved and wheelchair accessible for the first 0.4 mile. This hike offers jaw-dropping views of Sparks Lake with South Sister and Broken Top in the background.
