    Do not go down to Silver King lake ( it is actually more of a pond. There is only one good campsite, it is a steep hike down, and you there are tons of Mosquitos. Twin lakes ( at least the first one) is beautiful, calm, and clear. Great for fishing and swimming. Try to get there early if you are going on a weekend as it seems it could get popular. The campsites are really nice (if you can get one). We were attacked by mosquitos the whole hike there and back, however they weren't bad a Twin Lakes. Also dont bother going to the far lake at Twin Lakes, it is overgrown and there are lots of fallen and burnt trees. Looking at a map, it seems like coming from the hotsprings would be just as good.

    Nice for an urban trail. You can get a good workout without leaving the city. Unfortunately the stream is cloudy and the trail is often busy with runners and dogs. Try to go on a weekday if you really want to enjoy the experience. Nice restroom at the lower trailhead. Catch some of the nice restaurants and bakeries in nearby NW Portland.
