Hikers at No Name Lake (bobcat)

No Name Lake's turquoise waters are fed by melt from the eastern remnant of the Bend Glacier, which once draped both the northern and eastern slopes of the mountain. The glacier is now in two distinct segments. "No Name" seems to be the most popular unofficial name given to this lake although it has also been called Crater Lake (This is a cirque, not a crater.), Hidden Lake, and Bend Glacier Lake.

In 2017, a herd of 19 elk crossing high above the opposite shore of the lake was swept downslope and remained concealed by snow until the following year. Some of the carcasses ended up in the lake, while the remains of the others might be seen with binoculars on the lowest snow field.

In 2019 the Forest Service closed camping for a quarter-mile around the lake.
