This is a optional, and easier, line to the more difficult McKenzie River Trail that follows the east side of Clear Lake. The trail offers views of Clear Lake and follows a well constructed trail through old growth forest.

       This trail is super wide along the south and thinner along the switch back in the north. Super easy going, I think it should be a green. I don’t recall much technical like the crazy lava on the other side of the lake. Lots of hikers on both sides.

       Yes the water really is that blue in the pictures! No edits. Note if your afraid of the black MRT trail on the other side. It’s not black getting here from the north parking lot and I strongly encourage beginners to ride the first 1.4 miles of the MRT (or until lava) to see the amazingly blue “Great Spring” at mile 1.4 of the Mckenzie River Trail and then double back to this trail. (Or loop the lake facing the lava an embarrassing looks if you have to hike like my wife did. It wasn’t to bad for me but she hated the lava parts.)
