I cannot speak to how it is in summer but winter was phenomenal. Ended up snowshoeing up there in time to see the sunrise. It was cold but ridiculously gorgeous and worth every shivering step taken. Can't wait to make it back!

I love this little hike, and I am glad that it is a short hike. This was the third leg of a big day last week (Oct-14-2015). We started the day off with the South Sister hike. Once we finished that 12+ mile, 5000 foot climb, we transitioned over to Mt. Bachelor. That was much easier than South Sister. Mt.... More

Great Hike....GREAT to get blood pumping....and the reward...AMAZING VIEWS! Yes, strenuous on way up...but you can do it! It is well worth it. It is slow on way up depending on your fitness level but fast and effortless on way down. This hike is great! You can do it in a short amount of time and see breath-taking views. We... More

The hike up tumalo mountain is definitely hard work but the views are worth every drop of sweat. You definitely need hiking poles or a sturdy stick for the walk down the mountain as it's very hard on your knees (and we are young!!)

The 1.5 hike up the mountain is strenuous depending upon your fitness and ability. However, it is a nice hikk and if you take your time it's worth the hike. I saw numerous older folk who were not in the best of shape, making the hike. The view at the top is well worth your effort. The descent is fairly... More

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
