Pyramid Lake, which is tucked neatly in an isolated basin on the northern edge of the Mount Jefferson Wilderness, has everything a hiker could want in a mountain lake. Although there is no view of the wilderness’s namesake mountain, you’ll enjoy a wonderful perspective of Pyramid Butte, a local landmark that rises impressively above the lake’s east shore. And if views aren’t enough, you can feast on huckleberries, cool off with a refreshing swim, or try to catch a few of the lake’s tasty brook trout.
