This is a nice loop along the Deschutes River. It’s nice and shaded for the hot summer months.

Love this trail for the view of the Cascades. During the summer it is the most beautiful place to see a sunset. There is a trail to the top and a base trail. You can also walk up the paved path (which is closed to cars during the weekend)

nice relaxing walk.

Completed this hike on our Vacation last week! Just came in on the gravel road side of the trail and it was easy to walk and great views! Worth doing if you are there!

Great small hike with good views!

Pretty dull trail. Not to say it isn’t beautiful, it’s just that there are way better hikes with less people in the area. This would be a great hike for a young family with a running baby stroller. Lots of people and smooth paths

Decided to go out with my son and do some winter hiking. Headed up Sand Canyon and east toward highway. Left at all trail junctions back to parking lot. Three hours and a great hike. Plenty of snow on top 6-8"

Awesome trail - easy to follow, great beginner snowshoe, but spectacular views make it perfect for all levels of skill. Didn’t do the loop - just went out and back on the trail side, decided to nix the road section. Lots of fresh powder as of today, but it won’t last long!

This is a great winter get away!! Close to Bend and a good cross country ski!! On the weekend it is really crowded, but on the week day it is a good choice!! The views are spectacular and if you like waterfalls it is a must see!!

all up hill on the way to the top really windy towards the top but the view is spectacular! no city just nature and surrounded by mountains

Loved it. Was pretty cold around 45-50 degrees in the cave. Kids enjoyed every minute until they got a little cold but still loved it.

Quick and easy hike, beautiful views of Bend and the Cascades.

Please park in usfs parking lot at trail head not in front of gate during winter months. Too many rigs block access to the home owners further down the road. Nice walk but respect those that live near by.

easy ride...1 technical spot, make sure you close the gates (2) unless sign says otherwise, access to several caves (Boyd Cave being one of them)...nice ride, only bummer is constant gun fire due to range on China Hat road, otherwise great MTB spot.

The trail above the falls had more snow than expected. I had no snow shoes with me so hiked back on the creek trail which was also snow covered. I look forward to coming back!

I have done this trail three times!! Beautiful ending but the scenery is not the best in Bend during the hike.

Beautiful views, dog friendly, perfect run!

This is my favorite trail in Bend!

Pretty cool trail winding through the canyon. Lots of weird rock art if you look for the carvings. The trail was kinda spooky in spots with all the old juniper and how quiet it was. Sandy soft soil most of the way, cool rough road getting in. Went Friday and didn’t see anyone else. Went again Saturday and there were tons of people there. Ignore the map on this page. You access the trailhead from HWY 20 by the badlands rock trailhead.

You can see the Falls from the trailhead. However the gravel road to trailhead is closed, so it is a 3 mile easy hike with no elevation from where you park to the trailhead. Continuing on, trail had icy spots

This was an easy hike. Majority of it is walking up a gravel road but the scenery isn't horrible. Tried to get back to double falls but encountered to much ice on the trail. There is also a trail to get behind the falls and to the bottom

I did a 12 ish mile loop today plus a 1 mile detour off the loop due to poor signage. Overall a nice outing for a winter hike.

Pretty hike. Very interesting geology. I rated this as a 3/5 since views are minimal.

Beautiful quick hike but crowded especially in the peak season. I will only hike this one in the winter....

Peaceful, simple, beautiful. What else do you need in a hike! Be warned though- the waypoint for this map isn’t to the trailhead, it’s for the road to the trailhead- it’s kinda confusing!

great mountain biking trail
