Trillium Lake is one of the most scenic places to ski around Mount Hood with expansive views of Mount Hood as a background to the beautiful frozen lake surrounded by evergreen trees covered in snow. Even though the trail is right off the highway, there is still the peaceful quiet that is found on most snow covered terrain. This trail is suitable for cross-country skiers of all skill levels. The popular trails are groomed weekly and there are offshoot trails that can add some challenge for more experienced cross-country skiers.
