Olallie Lake

Hundreds of lakes dot the mile-high Olallie Lake Scenic Area, located at the crest of the Cascades, between Mount Hood and Mount Jefferson. Pictured here are me (left) and friend Jon at Olallie Lake, the largest and most popular lake in the district. Here, a rustic mountain store provides essential supplies, and a string of small cabins and yurts can be rented for those who want to spend time fishing or canoeing at the lake. Boats and canoes can also be rented here. This is a good base camp for anyone who wants to spend a few days exploring the trails that radiate into the Olallie backcountry.
