Not a long hike but a challenging one. Bring lots of water...

A lot of bang for your buck. Short, easy, with fantastic waterfalls. You can see three different falls by going roughly 1.5 miles past the main Tumalo viewpoint. Be sure to follow the mini trail to the bottom of Tumalo Falls as well.

Amazing hike. Very steep both up and down but so worth it! Go early to avoid the heat if the day. Bring lots of water!

Nice easy trail. Beautiful views.

Left from Todd Lake and it took about 6.75 mi to get to the top rim over looking the lake and the mountains. Beautiful views abound and the wildflowers were amazing in late July. The only issue is how busy it is. I went on a weekday night from the trailhead as the sun was setting and there were about 30 or so people up at the lake camping when I got there.

great low key hike!

Good hike, Two beautiful lakes. We went there with kids (11 yr, 8 yr, 6 yr). Trail path is wide enough and good. Moderate crowd.

on Broken Top Loop Trail

5 days ago

Originally had planned to do the loop in two nights and three days, but pushed through to do one night/two days. I agree that clockwise would be my advice as well, maybe some additional climbing the first day going uphill, but I would not have had the physical and mental strength to do the last part on a second or third day. Skirting Broken Hand was a little unnerving but doable - happy to have gotten it out of the way on day one. Camped at Green Lakes which was beautiful and not super buggy. Lots of water sources along the way but also a lot of exposed trail pretty much the entire time. No Name Lake is gorgeous but I wouldn’t get water there due to the animals on the ridge (dead elk ). Not sure how long they’ve been there, but best not to take chances. We backpacked this on August 8-9, 2018.

Lovely cruise hike with just the right amount of mystery about which mountain creature you might run into (sadly this bear-hungry Aussie only came up against one mean squirrel but a nice handful of humans coming up the trail while we made our way down).

Amazing hike, you walk along the spring all the way to the top. Awesome views of Broken top and bachelor behind on hike up. No name lake and the views of the 3 Sisters is defiantly worth the hike. Pretty moderate hike for an awesome reward! Was able to get my Mazda up the dirt road to upper parking lot! It was about 8 miles round trip.

WARNING!!! I saw a Facebook post on “Hiking in the Pacific Northwest” and 16 DEAD ELK CONTAMINATED THE WATER AT NO NAME LAKE.

DO NOT RISK DRINKING EVEN FILTERED WATER.

PEOPLE ARE SICK JUST FROM SWIMMING UNDERWATER.

WATCH OUT FOR YOUR DOGS IF THEY DRANK FROM THE WATER.

WARNING!!! 16 DEAD ELK CONTAMINATED THE WATER AT NO NAME LAKE AT THE SUMMIT OF BROKEN TOP

5 stars for the first part of the hike! Hiking the steep steps up to the top is so fun and gives you such awesome views! The path down is neat too (takes you past Monkey Face), but once you get down to the river it’s a little less exciting. Still a really nice trail and we enjoyed it, but all the “action” is in the first half of the hike!

Unique! Bring a very bright light, a tissue or two and wear a warm coat. Cave ventures back about a mile and a sign notifies you when to stop. Be aware not to wear any other clothes that you've worn in other caves. Definitely worth seeing!

Hiked August 7th-9th 2018

I REALLY would recommend CLOCKWISE or else you’re going to have a rough day three. It gets the hardest part out of the way and you start off the biggest incline hydrated, full, and with no sore muscles. If you went counter-clockwise it would be a slow incline the whole time until say where you climb Broken top with 2 days of day hiking Under your belt! People say the views are better counter-clockwise but it’s all the same trail, all you have to do is look behind you and then you’re facing the counter-clockwise view!

We hiked 10 miles the first day up to the summit of Broken top were we collected water and then down Broken top to small creek where we hammock camped and got more water.
On day 2 we made the short and Beautiful hike past green lakes to Golden Lake 6 miles away, there’s a stream right across the lake for fresh water and the views of Broken top are amazing! This day was for swimming, napping and relaxing as it only took 4 short hours to get there.
On the last day we hiked 8 miles to the beginning of the loop with a short incline at the end before walking downhill to the car. There were 3 or 4 creeks on the way for water but almost no shade. We finished this stretch in about 5 hours.

Hike is a little hard for beginners like us but anyone can do it with the right supplies!

What made it easy was my straw water filter I could screw on to water pouches, so I could fill them and drink right away from any stream. Also the self heating Omeals from REI were so cool, so yummy and self heats in only 5 miles with no supplies.

Great hike!!!

Beautiful waterfalls!!

Pretty popular trail considering the amount of traffic I ran into on a weekday morning. Road conditions on the way up are fairly poor and there is a lot of rippling of the gravel. Good hike with some cool views along the way. Glad I went once but I probably wont be back for a while.

It was a hot, hot day but the wildlife and flowers along the springs and creek that accompanied the trail were fantastic. No Name Lake breathtaking. I should have left my 11-year-old lab at home. Pretty tough on him but nothing lots of water and a cool, cleansing shower (for both of us) afterward.
I’m not a REAL experienced hiker, but this one was great in my book. The road up to Todd Lake tough. Have the right vehicle.

Flowers and the view here are great, also a nice easy trail to bring older family on.

Great hike but hit it early to avoid congestion.

Really enjoyed this hike.

Loved this hike! Great hike for dogs too as there are lots of water spots but as others have mentioned the trail gets HOT on some sections so you’ll definitely want to bring booties for your dog if you’re not going to be off the trail by noon. It does get a little steep if you go up to the glacial lake past the high meadow - which I definitely recommend doing!

Such a beautiful hike! Make sure you go in late July, which is peak for the wildflowers.

We went on this hike in February. It was chilly and we only ran into a couple other groups. Beautiful area, a short hike to the waterfall. You can enjoy this in just a couple hours.

Beautiful trail. Wildflowers are on their way down, but still abundant and amazing. If you choose to go toward Cirque Lake (the glacial lake just beneath Three Finger Jack), definitely bring adequate hiking shoes and poles if you have them. They will be an invaluable help. The path is loose gravel for the last 1/4 mile up to the glacial lake and on past (if you go up to the top of the crest). If you just do the loop, it’s a good climb on the first leg (to the meadow), but an easy downhill from there. Spectacular views of Three Finger Jack, Mt. Jefferson, and a few others (even 2 of the three sisters briefly). Heavily trafficked for a weekend but well worth it!
Also, no mosquitoes, but plenty of flies.

Such a Gorgeous hike!! No words... just go!!

Did this 2 weeks back. Good one.

This trail was a little difficult to navigate but No Name Lake is absolutely breathtaking and was definitely worth the effort! Make sure to have an SUV or other car with room underneath to make the bumpy drive out to the trail head and definitely use AllTrails to make sure you're heading in the right direction. Gorgeous!!!
