Contrary to what some reviewers have written, this is a moderate hike at best. Only 2.5 miles from the trailhead for spectacular views. Easy to drive to right out of Sisters

Title states it all. The views of the Mounts long with the lakes, streams, and rivers in the high desert cannot be beat.

Any forest is appealing to me, and this one has beautiful Tumala Falls. It's a short walk to the falls from the parking area, and has all the quiet beauty of a river, and good smells of nature!

Trails are well marked and groomed nicely. No climbing over rocks or downed trees here. Several places to picnic at the Creek and several loop trails.... More
