Just about anything you find on TravelOregon.com can be added to your own personal Trip Planner. Find out how.
Frog Lake Butte Trail starts or ends at the top of Frog Lake Butte, where on a clear day there are spectacular views of Mount Hood and the surrounding mountains and valleys. The trail is downhill all the way, with some very steep sections toward the top of the butte that are 25-35% grade for 50-100 yard lengths. Most of the trail is 10-15% grade with some level stretches. The trail passes through old growth forests and offers some nice views through the trees of Mt Hood and the surrounding area. About 1/8 mile of the trail is along a steep mountainside where the tread is only 6-8′ wide. Most of the tread is dirt with the exposed roots and occasional rocky areas. The trail is easy to follow.
