"Tranquil Todd Lake is a popular destination near Bend that stands out as a particularly beautiful lake in an area with intense competition in that category. From the meadows at the north end of this shimmering lake are stunning views of Mount Bachelor, while in the open forest at the south end of the lake are idyllic picnic spots. The loop is very easy, so hikers who want a little more exercise can ascend a trail that goes northeast to a spectacular ridge-top viewpoint of the Todd Lake Basin and Mount Bachelor." Read more
Best Hikes with Dogs: Oregon (The Mountaineers Books)

"This hike tours a varied landscape, rising from a large lake lined with fir and hemlock into a subalpine environment with less than 1000 feet of climb. Most of the hike is forested; open meadowlands offer streams or marshes. The first half of this almost 6-mile hike follows well-maintained Forest Service trails; the second portion tracks along roads, most of which are abandoned or gated off. They are really nothing more than luxuriously wide hiking paths, though there is occasional use by vehicles on the last half-mile, so as you return be vigilant for the sound of approaching engines and keep dogs close."

We did this trail in July and it was absolutely beautiful. The hike out is not very strenuous and the changing scenery is breathtaking. In July, the wildflowers were in bloom and the weather was sunny and bright. We saw a couple that was doing the trail on horse back. The green lakes campsite is wonderful. Each of the tent sites are very spread apart, so you definitely have the feeling of being isolated. There were a few mosquitos but they tended to disappear as temperatures dropped. Even in July the nights were a chilly 45 F. Would definitely do this again.
