Hike to Lucky Lake

2.5 Miles Round Trip - 405 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Lucky Lake Trailhead Parking - Search Nearby - Added by Kat Howell

Lucky Lake is less popular than other lakes along the Cascade Lakes Highway. Requiring a short hike through beautiful pine forest, the lake offers relative quiet, a great view of South Sister and clear, warmer water, since the lake is not fed by springs. 

Located just 4.36 miles past the popular Elk Lake Day Use turnoff, the trailhead is on the right side of the highway, marked by a small 'trailhead' sign. The hike begins at the Senoj Lake Trailhead and climbs up to the lake for 1.26 miles. Once you reach the lake, you can choose to go left or right until you find the spot where you want to set up for the day or night. It's a great place to hang hammocks and let the kids play.

Bathrooms are located at the trailhead only.
