A gorgeous trail! My only complaint is the rather scary (for my dog) log bridge...

Absolutely gorgeous hike, we did this last August. It is very crowded though and good luck getting a campsite on Friday or Saturday night!

Amazing hike, river all along the way up and a gorgeous set of lakes at the top. Long distance but easy in difficulty. Recommended to us by locals!

This is a fantastic hike! Beautiful scenery all the way up, you follow alongside Fall Creek, which has some nice little waterfalls. Not too steep for the most part, and at the end you come to the Green Lakes, which is a beautiful area in between Broken Top and South Sister. Great place to stop and have a snack and dip your feet in the water! There is a trail that goes around the lake, but it was hard to follow in some sections of the lava field. But it's easy to figure out at least what direction you should be going if you lose it. Just be prepared to get a little wet and muddy if you decide to hike around the lake!
