Trout Lake is active outdoor and indoor all year round, with hiking, biking, horseback riding, hunting, fishing, climbing, rafting, skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, wildflower walks, eating and drinking, and of course just actively lazing around.
Gifford Pinchot National Forest is one of the oldest National Forests in the United States and covers most of Mt. Adams and Mt. St. Helens. The east side of Mt. Adams is part of the 1.4 million acre home of the Confederated Tribes and Bands of the Yakama Nation.
The Pacific Crest Trail passes right through the area, and Trout Lake is a favorite place to rest, recoup, restock, and restart. Trout Lakers take pride in welcoming and helping through-hikers and day-trippers alike.

Bring your “other man’s treasures” or come find some new ‘treasures’ of your own at our annual Trout Lake Rummage Sale across from the Trout Lake Grocery. It’s always fun, and often profitable, to browse through our residents’ local ‘treasures’, and it never hurts too much to clear out some ‘no longer treasures’ of your own!
