This mountain has one of the best views in central Oregon that easily accessible. To the north is broken top mountain with the high alpine scenery. To the southwest is mount bachelor. There is minimal blowdown each year and all the snow is gone by July.

Was extremely cloudy and snowy when we were on top. Some pictures going up looked beautiful. Trail signs in winter we’re not very visible and took a completely non trail path up. Very hard and steep in snowshoes. Over all weather held this one back.

pretty steep near the summit. Very snowy most the way up. Brought my snowshoes and that helped a ton! Beautiful views at the top!

Definitely moderate. The view at the top is well worth the 2 miles up a mountain. It took about 1 and 20 minuets on the way up and about 40 minuets to get back down but we were going slower in some spots because of the ice on the trail. I will be doing this hike again it was breathtaking.

Thoroughly enjoyed the hike up Tumalo Mountain. Even wide enough at points to walk side by side making for good conversation while hiking.

This hike would have been absolutely lovely had the fire smoke not been so thick today. Got to the trailhead at 10. Only 1 other car there. Hike steady incline the whole way and dusty but not bad. Up at the top the visibility was zero! Could not even see base of Bachelor. Breathing wasn't an issue with smoke. Hope to go back when clear to get the views!

A really good uphill where getting to the top is well worth the aching legs.
Even with the fire haze the view is amazing.
Be prepared to eat some dust especially if it's a bit windy. But what's a little dust to hikers??
Watch your dogs and kids on the edge. We saw parents that allowed their approx 6 year old start walking down the edge in the pumice skree. One slip and he'd have quite the rough ride down. Stay safe, stay on the trail and enjoy!
