Bend, Oregon Map
3 days ago

Hiked July 4th last year, reasonable crowded for the time but not stuffed best view hike I have been on in Oregon so far and I couldn't expect much better. Watch out for bees, they don't appear to sting but are very annoying, even found one buzzing around at the summit. It was still snowy for a good portion of the mountain in early July but still easily hike able considering the elevation change.

You are walking up pavement to a great view of Bend and the surrounding area. Be careful of cars and bikes on the road as there is not much room on the pavement. This review is not for the trail head which is different.

This trail up thru Sand Canyon is definitely a eye catcher from the top. If u are trailrunning this section be on the lookout for mountain bikers coming down. I almost got wiped out by one a couple years back. Once u get up to the top of Sand Canyon you can go east over the barbwire fence and loop back to the trailhead or for a much longer ride/run head west and go to the summit. Then head south down the very difficult to bike backside of HorseRidge turning west and right at several trail junctions. This route will take you to the old highway which then you head east back to your vehicle

Beautiful hike!!

This is probably my favorite hike of all time. Whenever I look back and think of epic hikes I have done in past years, this is the first that comes to mind. This area of Oregon outshines any place I have been thus far, and it holds a special place in my heart.

For the first time I believe I felt something along the lines of mild altitude effects. I remember my heart was beating super fast, but I wasn't feeling out of breath. My hypothesis at the time is that my heart had to beat faster to get the oxygen needed to my blood. It felt very weird, and at times I felt a little lightheaded.

The reason I'm adding this review 6 years after I did the hike is because I need a profile photo for AllTrails, and this is the hike that came to mind to supply the photo!

One of my first hikes in Oregon. Beautiful views. Can't wait to do more exploring

It is very snowy right now! Most the people we saw were mountianeering/skiing. Didn't make it to the final summit but amazing views at the glacier.
