Pansy Lake Trail #551 Professional Reviews and Guides
"The Bull of the Woods Wilderness protects a lovely subalpine landscape of small lakes, rolling forests, and rugged peaks and ridges far from the more famous hiking areas around Mt. Hood, Mt. Jefferson, or the Columbia River Gorge. Although not as spectacularly scenic as those better-known areas, this wilderness offers plenty of beauty, fine lakes for swimming and fishing, and a good chance for solitude. This trip takes you into the heart of this remote preserve and provides an excellent sampling of everything the wilderness has to offer."
