The trail seemed to be very popular. The parking was almost full when we arrived on a weekday. Most of the trail runs through a forest so you can take a break in a shadow when you are exhausted. Remember on the top you will get a reward - magnificent views. Bring a binocular, a camera and water. Kids friendly.... More

I always enjoy this hike. It's about 1.5 miles one way and all up to the summit. It takes you through the lower shady forest and on until you summit with fabulous views of both Mt Bachelor and the Three sisters. I find it to be an invigorating hike, not an easy one. It took me 2:45 round trip, but... More

The view of the Cascade Mountains----especially the Three Sisters----is beyond compare. Watching the sunsets is the best in the U.S.

This great hike gains 1400 feet in about 2 miles. It was sunny and hot the day we went up, but we got a good workout. Wonderful views of South Sister, Broken Top, and Mt. Bachelor from the summit. Easy parking at trail head, but can be busy on weekends, etc. Requires NW Forest Pass. Dogs OK. Note that this... More

This little butte sits adjacent to Mt. Batchelor, offering terrific views of that 9000 ft. snow-covered peak to the west. The 2 mile climb from the parking lot is well graded, mostly through sparse evergreen forest, affording many photogenic shots of Batchelor on the way up. Open meadows were filled with purple lupine in mid summer. From the summit of... More

Tumallowa in Native American means icy creek, and is thought to be the origin of the name of Tumalo Mountain, Tumalo Falls, Tumalo Reservoir, Tumalo State Park and the town of Tumalo, all situated in Central Oregon in the vicinity of the city of Bend. I had to laugh when I saw that Tumalo Mountain is listed as being by... More

A good, tough day hike with some nice views! If you're looking for a short few hours on the trail, this is a good choice with a view at the top.

While this is not my favorite place to hike/ski in Central Oregon, it does make for a nice, short, easy hike as well as a fun place to randonee ski. Whether for a quick jaunt after work or an easy place to take visiting friends/family, the view from the top is beautiful and the trail is very accessible. The biggest... More

This is a great little hike with some amazing views at the top. There was quite a bit of snow still (95% ground cover I'd say) in early July. But we managed it with only hiking boots just fine. Only saw two other groups of people on this day, but I would imagine that changes during peak seasons.

About 3.5 miles round trip, this hike provides a nice short hike to fantastic views of the Three Sisters, Mount Bachelor, and Broken Top Mountains. Start from the Dutchman Sno-Park up trail 38. The hike is up hill all the way to the peak. While they may have to take some breaks, any well conditioned 10 to 12 year old... More
