Trail Overview

This route is a great detour when traveling between Bend and Sisters Oregon. On one end you'll find easy access to Tumalo Falls and on the other easy access to the town of Sisters. Along the way you'll pass three creeks lake and wrap around the base of Trout Creek Butte. Along the way you'll encounter mostly smooth gravel roads, but there are a few miles (near Three Creeks Lake) that are rutted dirt and can have snow covering the road late into the spring.


Between Three Creeks Lake and Tumalo Falls the road is mostly dirt and can become muddy with rain or snow melt. The southern exposures at higher elevations may have snow covering the road well after lower elevations are completely clear and dry.
