Bend, Oregon

Hike to Sparks Lake

1 Miles Total - Loop Trail

Originally added by Richard Bacon

Sparks Lake is an easy trail for all ages and levels located close to Bend, Oregon. 

Sparks Lake is the perfect place to bring the whole family for a hike and to see the beauty of the Cascade Mountains reflecting on the water. This spot is slightly typicaly less crowded than nearby lakes and this trail tends to be less popular than other trails around Sparks Lake. Don't expect to be all on your own, but it's usually a nice quiet place to spend the day.

From the parking lot, look for signs pointing to the trailheads and keep an eye out for the Ray Atkeson Memorial Trail. The first part of the loop is one mile roundtrip, but you can extend the hike for a total of around 2 miles round trip. Either way it's a mild trail and super easy.
