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.

Harder hike that I expected at the beginning, but the views are incredible! PS, prepare to get full of dirt and dust.

Not an easy one with a pretty much non-stop uphill climb but the view at the top is so amazing. Lots of space up top for a picnic and relaxing to enjoy the view. Only saw a few mosquitos. This is also a great snowshoe hike (unmarked though) in the winter.

Mosquitos if you stop moving! Always worth it though

Nice views at the top, but otherwise not terribly exciting, good to get heart pumping atleast.

Gorgeous views from the top of Bachelor, Broken Top as well as the other 2 Sisters. Still lots of snow on the trail and we got sidetracked several times (pro tip, look for the dirtiest snow trail and that is where to go). Sunscreen is a must. Sunglasses are a must (snow glare). Hiking boots recommended. Hiking poles not necessary, but we wish we'd had them. Definitely not a good hike right now for anyone with balance issues or knee/ankle injuries. Bugs were out a little (each got one bite). Hike is deceptively tough given that you're 1. navigating crusted snow for 50-60 feet at a time, 2. Its straight up the mountain side, only switchbacks are at the vey top, and 3. The altitude will kick your butt if you're not from the area.
