hiking

Trail is a mixture of runners, people with dogs, and mountain bikers. It's a dirt trail that is mostly flat. Walking along the river was really pretty but to/from was just okay. Keep track of which paths you've taken because it isn't marked at all. Overall pretty, close to Bend, and very dog friendly!

backpacking

This was our first backpacking trip. There were 2 adults and 6 children ages 7-14. Leading up to this trip i had trouble finding information about camp sites. I will share with you what we found.
There were a few campsite options about 2 miles in at Merten mill(where the first bunch of old mining equipment is), if you don't mind everyone entering this wilderness hiking by your site.
Once you get onto the kopetski trail another 1/4 mile down the road( take a right over the wooden bridge), the forest is real dense and we didn't notice any suitable areas for a camp until just after slide falls(2 3/4 miles into the hike).
This is where we camped(slide falls) and the site was big enough for 3-4 small tents. From here until opal pool the forest thins out and we saw 5(maybe 6)
other sites suitable for camping that would accommodate multiple tents.
On the gravel road we only saw 2 small sites suitable for only 1 tent, these also were just past slide falls.
None of the pools or waterfalls are marked except opal pool. We never did find sawmill falls (somewhere in the vicinity of merten mill).
We did find slide falls, only because other people were there. We all had a blast playing in the pool and going down the slide. In the afternoon it got really crowded, so I would suggest getting there early.
I hope this was helpful to future backpackers.

view was amazing, love the siuslaw national forrest. the hike wasn't a hike it was more of a drive to the top and an enormously steep uphill climb that lasts all but 3-5 minutes. check out the wild flowers.

I was very pleased and excited that this trail was so easy to find. Great path for running and biking...I'll definitely add this to my favorites. This trail runs into many others in the area...so you can make it an adventure.

A perfect little hike--take the kids, take your parents who don't like hiking--they will after this one! Beautiful forest follows river then goes up above river on lave rock to the gorgeous Tamolitch Pool. Something special to see for sure.

Great hike with steep, slippery descents. This is one of the harder cardio hikes I've been on and it feels very hot even when it's only in the low 70s. It's cool to watch the rock climbers and the view from the summit is magnificent. It's a great place to take visitors.

on Clear Lake Trail

hiking

We like to start at Clear Lake Resort and hike North around the lake. Easy hike most of the way. You will hike thru an old lave flow on the East side of the lake. Some loose lava rock and can get very hot in the summer. Bring your water bottle. Beautiful views of the Three Sister's. And the lake's color is amazing. A nice bridge takes you over the start of the McKenzie river on the south end. Plan about 2.15 hours for this hike.
