Lily and Charlton Lakes

Lily and Charlton Lakes Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"While Charlton Lake lies pretty close to Willamette Pass near Waldo Lake, you can get to it via a few bumpy back roads off the Cascade Lakes Highway. The final road to the trailhead is long and slow, but once you’re here, it’s a mere hop, skip, and a jump to Charlton Lake. Pack a lunch and spend the day hiking, swimming, and enjoying the great outdoors. Try the pleasant loop to the smaller Lily Lake before a quick jaunt to hang out on the shores of Charlton Lake.

In less than .75 mile, you'll reach the southern shores of a small lake. You'll see the destruction from forest fires around most of the lake, although there's a treed section on the southwestern edge that somehow escaped the burn. Lily Lake is a good spot to stop for a snack or make a refreshing jump into the cool pool on hot days before continuing on."
