Starting across from the Betty Lake trailhead, this trail winds through an open mountain hemlock forest and crosses the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail on its way to Bobby Lake.

This campground has a few sites with no toilets and no potable water.

This small island near the west shore of the lake is covered with rhododendrons as its name indicates. They bloom in early to midsummer and give the island exceptional charm. Please be gentle to the environment and leave no trace of your stay. It is an easy paddle from Shadow Bay, but the island can also be reached from either Islet or North Waldo Campgrounds with a little more effort. Morning and evening offers the quietist water for canoeing. The mosquito population is high from June to mid-August and can be quite bothersome, so be prepared!

Shadow Bay Campground is located on a large bay at the south end of Waldo Lake. It is a considerably wetter environment than either North Waldo or Islet Campgrounds, supporting a more diverse and prolific ground cover as well as more mosquitoes. The use rate is considerably lighter than North Waldo Campground. A hike to the South Shelter on the Shore Line Trail and then the Waldo Lake Trail #3590 is a pleasant way to enjoy the natural beauty of the woods and the lake, as well as a view of the snowcapped Sisters.","post_name":"shadow-bay-campground","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"43.6952","lng":"-122.043","distance":"1.5","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/camping-recreation\/hiking\/shadow-bay-campground\/","terms":"a Hiking<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"6967","post_title":"Maiden Peak Trail","post_content":"Maiden Peak Trail (#3681) is a difficult 1.8 mile trail. Right from the start, the trail begins to climb. It soon levels out to a gradual uphill grade, with good views of nearby hills and valleys. It crosses Skyline Creek and the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail before reaching a dry flat. The trail climbs again; steeply at first, then gradually, as it passes through rocks and around small, snow-fed ponds. Once again the grade steepens as the trail climbs up the west side of Maiden Peak. Momentary relief comes at a small meadow where the trail levels as it passes through stunted, windblown trees. With the trees below you, the trail picks its way through \"rubble rock,' past a small crater, and finally along a ridge for the final ascent to the top of Maiden peak. At the top, turn slowly and view the 360 degree panorama of the Cascade Range.","post_name":"maiden-peak-trail","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"43.6398","lng":"-122.006","distance":"3.5","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/cycling\/hiking\/maiden-peak-trail\/","terms":"a Hiking<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"}]},"success":true,"html":""}
