todd lakeTodd Lake is a natural lake near the crest of the Cascade Range in central Oregon. Todd Lake Loop Trail is an easy 2.1 mile loop trail around the lake. There is a day-use area and a rustic campground located on the west shore of the lake. In the summer, Todd Lake is a popular spot for picnicking, fishing, hiking, and nature viewing. In the winter, trails in the Todd Lake area are used for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.

Todd Lake is 24 miles  southwest of Bend, on the Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway (also known as Forest Road 46). The turn-off to Todd Lake is approximately 1.8 miles east of the Mount Bachelor ski area. From the byway, take Forest Road 4600-370 north 0.5 miles to reach the Todd Lake parking area. There is a 0.5-mile walk from the parking area to the lake.
