Got to the summit for sunrise. All trails is incorrect, one way is closer to 3 miles. Overall beautiful hike, very cool to see the runs without snow on them.

Love this hike! Started out around 5:30am. It was a cold start 28! I had on shorts and a t-shirt, a pull over, and thin wind jacket. The wind jacket came off about halfway up. I was pretty comfortable til the top with the wind blowing i got chilly til i started back down. I parked just outside the closed gate in the dirt and began walking up the asphalt road/parking lot then to the right of the ski lift was the trail head. The first half is in the woods. It was amazing hiking as the sun was rising through the trees. There is a Good amount of rocks on the second half. The views are amazing. Pack some water and enjoy the trip. I do this one every time I am in Bend. Took me 3 hours. Spending about 15 mins at the top and a couple water stops.

Hiked 8/3. Started out from the main resort parking lot and hiked across the central ski runs on a service road for the majority of it until we reached the bottom of the summit lift (lower lot was gated closed). Probably added maybe a mile and a half more to the trail. Pretty sandy and loose at times but doable with a little extra caution. Beautiful views of South Sister and Broken Top throughout! It was a clear day and had great visibility. The trail isn’t very shaded and very rocky so I highly recommend a hat and sturdy shoes. Not too many others on the trail and everyone was very considerate. Poles would probably help but I was fine without. Trail is well marked with spray painted white arrows.

There are signs telling you not to park where the trailhead on AllTrails is. If you park at the lodge it will add a couple of miles, but they are relatively flat. the rest of the hike is great! Poles are helpful though.

Beautiful view for almost the whole way! I would recommend starting early to beat the heat. Most of the hike is not shaded. The view at the stop is amazing!!

The trail was really well marked- it had white arrows spray painted on rocks directing you where to go, and rocks in the form of an arrow and “GOOD JOB”! It had beautiful views from all parts of the hike. I recommend climbing through rock structures at the top of the hike for the BEST views. Definitely bring poles if you can for the way down and spikes if you have them! I didn’t have them and could’ve used them many times.

Park at the closed gate of the Sunrise lodge. This will make it about 2.9 miles to the top. This is a good hike with lots of elevation gain but it is significantly shorter than South Sister. Last 2/3 of a mile towards the top is pretty brutal and rocky, then turns into sand. Take your time as it is pretty easy to turn an ankle towards the top.

Started at the West Village Lodge. Follow the road up until 1.6 miles then head to the trail to the right which will take you up; we missed this initially and forged our own trail over rocky terrain until we met up with the trail. Amazing views of the Sisters and Broken Top for most of the hike, with unparalleled views at the very top! Bring sunscreen!

I hiked this trail today 7/19/20 from Pine Marten Lodge after hiking South Sister trail yesterday. If I were to do this trail again, I would start from West Village. When you hike from Pine Marten Lodge you have to walk on a service road. Lots of bikes and ocasional service cars passed me by raising lots of dust. On the way back you actually have to be hiking up the service road from the trail junction to the lodge. This hike is much easier than hike to South Sister. It’s not very well marked and sometimes it was not easy to find the trail. No bugs. Very little snow and you don’t need micro spikes. I recommend bringing with you hiking poles, sunscreen, and water. The views from the top are beautiful.

Very dusty for the first 2/3 of the trail, followed the service roads at times when we lost the train but were always able to find our way back to it. Beautiful view from the top and plenty of snow to slide down on your way back. A great trip and fun to watch the mountain bikers by Pine Marten Lodge.

You have to start from the main lodge area. Signage is poor, and I was unable to find the trail for a little bit. But the first 1-2 miles is rough gravel/dirt road with a decent incline. Once you reach the chairlift at 7300ft you can find the actual trail if you head east towards the little square thing with antennas on it. The rest of the trail is pretty rocky and sandy. And more towards the top it’s just loose rocks. There were still a decent amount of places covered in snow. I didn’t use poles or crampons, but I would suggest them. I lost the trail a few more times due to snow, but you can tell so did everyone else cause there’s new pathways to the top. The top was gorgeous and I had it all to myself. Down was not fun due to all the loose rock. So be prepared for that

We started at 5:30am from the West Village, enjoyed a lengthy breakfast and photos, then arrived back at the car just after the chairs started running at 10. Beautiful views galore! Layers, Poles, and YakTrax were necessary. Finishing before the heat of the day was great. Only saw 1 person on the way up and 5 on the way down.
