Gold Lake Road Professional Review and Guide

"A lot of beginner snowshoers and cross-country skiers share this route. It’s popular among beginners for good reason: it’s relatively short (you can do the round trip in about 4 hours), not too steep, and the scenery is rewarding for the short distance. On a clear day you can view the frozen lake itself and the hills around Willamette Pass, as well as Diamond Peak. A three-sided warming shelter at the lake is equipped with a wood stove and firewood.

Lake Sno-Park is located just below the summit of Willamette Pass on the right. At the sno-park you’ll also find a warming hut constructed and maintained by the Willamette Backcountry Ski Patrol and U.S. Forest Service volunteers. When ski patrol members staff the hut, you can get good information about trail conditions. The Gold Lake Sno-Park also serves as a
jump-off point for several other trips in the Diamond Peak Wilderness Area (and many routes in this book)."
