Tips
Getting There

This mountain has one of the best views in central Oregon that is easily accessible. To the north is Broken Top Mountain with beautiful high alpine sceneries and to the southwest is Mount Bachelor. There is minimal blowdown each year and all the snow is gone by July.

Get here early as it often fills up with snowmobile trailers.

From Bend drive west on the Cascade Lakes Highway until you get to the Tumalo Parking lot across from Mt. Bachelor. You'll need a Snow-park pass here to park.

Outstanding trail! Well-marked, challenging, and a gorgeous view from the top! Trail was busy midday but hikers were courteous. Bring sunscreen and water/snacks. Plenty of parking and an open bathroom.

Awesome hike! I began about 6:30 in the morning and no one else on the trail. I prefer to take hikes when it’s quiet and I have it to myself. The view from the top is spectacular. Still some snow. As I descended many people coming up. Highly recommend.

6-27-20. What a beautiful hike. We switch backed in and out of shade up the side of the mountain. If you are not in shape you must take your time, you will get out of breath quickly. I am in shape and took my sweet time. Great views of Mt. Bachelor on the way up and back down. The views from up top are spectacular!! The mountains go on forever. A must do hike on a clear day to make it all worth while.

This trail never disappoints, and on a sunny clear day like today the views from the summit are outstanding. One of the best short hikes in Central Oregon.

Forever one of my favorite quick hikes in Bend! The trail is in perfect condition, clear of snow and debris. Beautiful views up top, as always.

Fantastic views at the top, not too long so it was a good hike to do with my dog. Patches of snow but I hiked in my trail runners and I was fine.

Once you are able to find the path, the trip is steep but worth the views! Still snowy in so places so be careful out there!

Early morning hike up Tumalo Mountain was great. Only a little snow and mud on the trail. No issues wearing normal hiking shoes. Always great to get back in the mountains.

Came here on a whim when visiting Bend this week. I was absolutely glad that I followed through with this plan. Not gonna lie, at first I was a little worried about the trail conditions, reading about the snow and ice and all that stuff. But, I decided to pursue my original idea anyway. If you've never done this hike before, be prepared for some snow and some ice. The trail way is also loosely marked and at times it can be difficult to stay on the correct path. For that reason just like others have said I do recommend having a GPS so that way you can make sure that you don't get lost in the forest (which is hard to do because this trail is heavily trafficked). Weather was absolutely fantastic, lots of sunshine and a beautiful 360゚ view at the summit of beautiful Bend, Oregon. If you are a hiker, beginner to advanced, come check this place out - you will not regret it. :-)

Trail was 75%+ covered in snow and ice, wear micro’s. Has many downed trees and is difficult to follow. Use the GPS. Rainy and snowy so didn’t see views.

Lots of snow patches but very doable. Watch out for the cornice at the top. Happy trails!
