This 19.6 mile (31,6 km) loop trail goes around Waldo Lake, one of the clearest lakes in the world. Although most of the trail is out of view of the lake, spectacular scenery abounds. See Mt. Bachelor, Broken Top and the Middle and South Sister from the south and west portion of the trail. Commonly known as Waldo Lake Trail, the trail was renamed after it received National Recreation Trail designation. There are four access points: North Waldo Boating Site and Picnic Site, Harralson Horse Camp/Trailhead, Shadow Bay Boat and Islet Boat Site. DAY-USE FEE/RECREATION PASS REQUIRED.
