Upper Twin Lake

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Upper Twin Lake seen through mountain hemlocks (bobcat)


Upper Twin Lake is smaller, more shallow, and quieter than Lower Twin Lake. There are a handful of campsites on both the west and east shores of the lake. This is a popular overnight backpack from Barlow Pass and a good day destination for cross-country skiers and snowshoers. There's a view of the top of Mount Hood from the south shore.
