"Whether you’re looking for a pleasant family campout or a good day of hiking, Lost Lake has what you need; that’s why there are often so many people there. But as is always the case, their numbers decrease in direct proportion to how far you walk and your ability to avoid weekends. For the 3.3-mile trail around the lake, start in front of the general store. Walk to the boat dock and turn right. The first 0.25 mile of Lost Lake Trail #620, which parallels the road, is dotted with lakeside picnic tables. Soon you’ll come to a platform with a view of Mount Hood that may look quite familiar from calendars or postcards. Come back here at the end of the day for the best photographic light." Read more
