Lost Lake Butte Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"This route circles picturesque Lost Lake in the Mount Hood National Forest. Mountain views. Bridge crossings. Enjoy smooth sailing around picturesque Lost Lake on this classic lake route in the Mount Hood National Forest.

Perks include stellar views of Mount Hood, old-growth forest, and opportunities for swimming on a hot summer’s day. Beware of the slippery wood ramps on this route. Rest rooms are available at the trailhead. Water is available in the campground."

"The rustic resort at Lost Lake is a great place to spend a night or two, with boats for rent, picnic tables with grills, a campground, and a beautiful lake stocked with trout. It’s also a lovely walk around the natural 240-acre lake, including an interpretive, barrier-free, old-growth trail and one of the most photographed views of Mount Hood—all this, plus two optional longer hikes, one of them to a fine lookout point."

WE DROVE UP VIA ZIG ZAG AND WISHED WE WOULD HAVE TAKEN THE JEEP, ABOUT 4 MILES IS GRAVEL. NEXT TIME WE'LL GO VIA HOOD RIVER WITH THE CAR OR TAKE THE JEEP NORTH FROM ZIG ZAG ON LOLO PASS ROAD. LOLO PASS ROAD IS VERY SCENIC--- STUNNING VIEW OF MT HOOD.BUT ONCE WE GOT TO LOST LAKE IT WAS JAW DROPPING BEAUTIFUL. THERE ARE MANY TRAILS IN THE LOST LAKE AREA BUT WE DID THE EASY PERIMETER OF THE LAKE. NEXT TIME WE'LL GO EARLIER IN THE DAY SO WE HAVE TIME TO ALSO RENT A BOAT.CELL PHONES DO NOT WORK IN THE IMMEDIATE LAKE AREA.
