It was a nice trail, clean, and friendly. Not a lot of variety for scenery, but was a good jaunt.

Nice trail conditions - it's a very dry, sunny trail good for winter/chilly days. The scenery does get monotonous after a while, but a couple spectacular views and nice old-growth Juniper. The backside of the loop, between junction 8-12 is quite littered with trash (cans, bottles, shotgun shells), as is one spot about 1 mile from trailhead. Sad. Otherwise, foot traffic only - no bikes/horses.

HikingGreat!

Nice trail system. You're in juniper forest for most of it, although there are a couple good viewpoints. These trails suffer from a certain sameness that is shared by most trails through junipers. It's pleasant, but nothing really stands out.

Recommend snapping a pic of the trail map at the start as there are many interconnected trails within the loop. More sandy than hard soil, but quiet and great for trail ruñning.

Great trail...so many interesting landscapes as you hike along the trails. We loved seeing the old growth trees as we did the complete loop. Only saw one other person as we hiked a few trails. The trail map is great to follow the various trails as they connect together. This site has become one of our favorite places to hike

Tumalo Canal Trail Loop. Great walk. Very dog friendly. Dust, sand and a little mud. In all, a very very enjoyable walk.

Nice leash-optional trail through juniper, some parts sandy and other parts harder soil. There’s no water so bring some if you take a dog. We saw just one couple and a dog. Nice vein of the Cascades for a short part of the hike. Only thing that made it less peaceful was hearing gunshots. It’s on or near BLM land where target shooting is legal.

First to Review

This is part of a cool system of trails near Cline Butte. There are markers along the trail and a few different options within the loop. Not too difficult to find. The trail itself is pretty exposed so nicer for a cooler day than a hot one. Packed down sand and dirt, well maintained, easy going hike.
