We couldn’t have asked for better weather for this hike. Cloudy most of the time with a little sun in between. Lava island is so impressive! Got to see some big crows and a pretty flintch as well. Great easy family hike along the Deschutes!

Beautifully landscaped, asphalt and stone path for the most part (some gravel) along the Deschutes river. Visually impressive, easy stroll, enjoy the walk.

Not sure why it’s considered moderate. It’s a nice easy trail along the water. We brought our dog. Lots of spot for her to swim. Bathrooms every 1-2 miles.

Really nice trail along river. Friendly crowd and lots of sweet dogs along the way. I would consider this to be easy and not moderate. There was hardly any elevation gain.

Lots of puddles, the scenery is gorgeous. Lava flow and lots of pine trees, just breathtaking with a light dusting of snow this morning. Hiked from meadow picnic area to Dillon falls, about 6 miles each way. Loved it!
