Trail Ambassador Intro Hike – Mirror Lake

July 1 at 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

Join your fellow Ambassadors and TKO staff on an excursion to get to know the trails you serve!

Hike Leaders: Loren P.

Hike Distance: 4.2 miles total

Elevation Gain: ~670 ft

Hike Intensity: Moderate

Trail Overview:

The Mirror Lake Trail is one of the most popular day-use trails in the Mount Hood National Forest. Easily accessible from the highway, family friendly, and full of amazing views, Mirror Lake is heavily visited throughout the season.

Hiking information:

We will be hiking the Mirror Lake Loop Trail from the trailhead, through meadows and over bridges to Mirror Lake, and back. This trail is a 4.2 mile loop trail that gains ~670 feet in elevation and is considered a moderate intensity hike. See a map and more details about the trail here.

What to expect:

This is generally considered a moderate intensity hike. The land is managed by the U.S. Forest Service and the trailhead is a Fee Site requiring an appropriate pass or $5 day fee. TKO will provide passes to those needing one. We ask that you respect all posted signage and stay on the trail. Please dress for the weather and bring plenty of food and water.

You will be asked to electronically sign the e-waiver for this event and perform a self-assessment health screening within the 24 hours proceeding the event. The hike leader for this event will verify that you have done both of these requirements at the trailhead before the party begins. Your pre-event emails will contain further details and links for both of these requirements.

You should expect to participate in this hike for its entirety. For safety reasons, please do not arrive late or expect to be able to leave early.

LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT: TKO recognizes that the trails we work on travel through the traditional lands of many Indigenous tribes. In every corner of what we now call Oregon, these people were forced to cede their land, their home, to the US government at various times throughout history. We are privileged to be here today & express gratitude to the descendants of these tribes for being the original stewards of this land.

EQUITY & INCLUSION: TKO seeks to make Oregon’s trails a place where people can go to connect with nature & one another. Not everyone feels safe & welcome in the outdoors due to racism, bias & hate. We commit to being part of the solution to change that. Conduct, speech, or expressions that target individuals or groups will not be tolerated by TKO, regardless of whether they are based on age, citizenship, disability, ethnicity, gender identity/expression, geographic origin, language, marital status, nationality, race, religion, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic status.

PERSONAL SAFETY: Your physical & emotional safety is our number one priority. If a person’s actions or comments make you feel uncomfortable/unsafe – interrupt directly, tell a crew leader &/or complete the post-event survey.
