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.

Hiked this with our 3 kids (ages 6, 11 and 13) and had a great time. Views of South Sister, Broken Top and Middle Sister at the top were spectacular! Highly recommend for a family hike!

Short hike for spectacular views! Worth staying for sunset but it gets windy and cold up top!

Well groomed trail, made for easy going. Fantastic views of the Sisters and Broken Top and in late July there were still wildflowers and butterflies to enjoy.

Excellent hike that isn't too challenging, but will give you a good workout. Spectacular views all around the top. The trail is basically all uphill to the top and, of course, all downhill hiking back to the beginning. There was a fair amount of traffic for a Friday morning, but we had the top to ourselves for ten minutes. Temperature was nice, and the light breeze felt great. There weren't too many bugs.

I'm 15 and come from SC, so I'm not very skilled in hiking. But this trail was fantastic and had it's tough moments, but the views were worth it!!

This an amazing hike for views considering it is only 2 miles in. I can't tell you how many years I drove by this hike on to others, oblivious to its existence. You see, there isn't a sign along the highway, so it's easy to pass up. This is my second time up the mountain, and it was awesome. I think it somehow got better since last time, or my memory fades (probably the latter). Perhaps it was because I went late in the day when the shadows were long, and the clouds were epic. Crazy beautiful up close and personal view of many major mountains in Central Oregon. It's well worth the bit of effort to get to the top.

Excellent hike with stunning views on a clear day! Tough incline heading up, but well worth the views. Snowshoed in mid- March

Snowshoed on a clear day in January. Followed previous tracks up, and blazed our own trail coming back down. Quite steep at the final ascent, but manageable. View from the top was breathtaking.

By following the existing trail forged by those before me, I went straight up - round trip with some wandering around at the summit left my GPS showing only 2.98 miles. Snow was an icy pack the whole way up. Summit would be fantastic... On a day without a complete whiteout. Still worth the trip, great length and strenuous for a weekend day hike between breakfast and a late lunch. I look forward to going up in the spring.

Beautiful hike for snowshoes. Trail is covered so you’re at the mercy of the previous snowshoer who picked a pretty spicy grade up to the top.

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.

Good incline hike withe beautiful views from the top. Very smoky today with light trail activity.

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!

straightforward to the top. Good views of Bachelor and the 3 sisters.
