The trail was beautifully marked with discrete paths for snowmobiles, cross country skiers, and snowshoeing. Our group enjoyed the rolling terrain and volcanic rock features on Snowshoes. There's a nice lunch stop at the shelter.

Very well marked trail. Arrived around 10:30 and there was still parking. Didn’t feel crowded at all on the trail.

We went New Years Day around 1pm so a little late. The parking lot was crowded but that’s because a lot of people had 2 spots for their snow mobile trailers. We snowshoes the short loop. It was about 2 3/4 miles, easy, beautiful. Safe for children, no cliffs, not deserted, well marked.

Great dog friendly snowshoe area right outside of Bend or Sunriver. It’s beautiful and even though it was somewhat busy, we still had the trail to ourselves most of the time. I would absolutely recommend this spot!

This is a great dog friendly snow shoe trail, but due to the low snow mpack there were several bare spots. This was our first time snow shoeing, and we probably should have done the shorter loop. Next time I would probably take a right at the fork so we can check out the shelter while our legs were still fairly fresh. By the end we didn't want to walk the extra .5 miles (round trip) out of the way.

Some short patches with no snow, but easy enough to go around them. Overall good snowshoe trail, well protected from the wind.

Nice forested snow shoe although snow shoes were not needed today and microspikes worked better due to the pack. Trails are well marked, there is a warming hut, and it is dog friendly.

SnowshoeingSnow

There is about 3-5 feet of pack snow. It rained a bit so no real fresh snow. Ended up using crampons instead of snowshoes although most others we ran into were using snowshoes because if you stepped slightly off the packed trail, you would sink in up to waist deep. Good trail for dogs and parking lot was less than 1/4 full for this rainy Saturday. 4 stars and not 5 because there is no view (that I'm aware of at least) on this trail. Really pretty scenery though!

First to Review

1/20/20: Completed long loop snowshoe. The park is off the beaten trail and less crowded with plenty of parking on this holiday weekend. Trail was quiet, and I did not run into other snowshoers until the end. The beginning/end is fascinating if you catch it with the right amount of snow...mammoth white mounds on top of the dark lava fields. Trail pleasantly undulates through a forest with lodgepole, ponderosa, and (I believe) fir. Some big ponderosa pines are in sharp contrast to the snow with their cinnamon bark. This loop is just under 4 miles. Dog friendly, which is nice. Less pristine than Meissner or Swampy, IMO, as the forest is less grand. Expect a little yellow snow and the occasional poop bag tucked away. Definitely worth checking out if you’ve done the others, want something different from a geologic standpoint, or simply want some time with your pup.
