This video describes the hike to Moraine Lake, near South Sister, the way it was on 10-5-2017. We started the 5.75 mile hike at the Devils Lake trail head on Cascade Lakes Highway and it took us 3 hours and 15 minutes to complete.
The first 2 miles of trail climb steadily through the woods before breaking out to a flatter plain with great views of South Sister, Broken Top and Mount Bachelor. We then took the second trail that drops down to Moraine Lake and looped back to the climbers trail via the first Moraine Lake trail that we had passed earlier. We took the climbers trail back down to the trail head the way we came.
This is a very scenic area and there are several campsites scattered around the lake.
