We did a snow camping trip up the mountain and it was awesome. Amazing views of Bachelor, Broken Top, Three Sisters. Can see the city lights of Bend glowing in the distance at night. We snowshoed in and set up camp a few hundred feet below the summit. Snowshoes are a must in the winter, I think we had about 8 feet of snow out there. Snowmobiles are abundant around the base of the mountain, but not so much higher up. Also popular spot for back-country skiing, saw plenty of people doing that as well.

One of my favorite places to visit. Easy hike and beautiful view of the mountain. The trail isn't super maintained in some spots but it's still easy to get around. During the summer it's nice for fishing and canoeing/kayaking.

Really enjoyed this hike. I bet this hike would especially be awesome on a clear day. Going up, a bit slippery because of the snow. Reaching the summit is such a reward! Beautiful views and great to see the fire lookouts.

Very wonderful and beautiful Hike. My wife and I's favorite time to go is in the winter with the snow:)

Easy hike close to town, Great mountain views from Eagle point. Clean area can get crowded, parking very limited.

Good trail. Well marked. Lots to see. Worth the drive out to it if you're visiting the area.

Awesome views. The views got even better when we headed over to belknap.

Did this trail today, pretty socked in with clouds at the top but some great views on the way up. Had quite a bit of snow. Will be doing this one again.
