Explore the most popular hiking trails near Redmond with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

The trail shown comes nowhere near Cline Falls, it actually is in and around the Eagle Crest development. To view. Cline Falls, park in Cline Falls State Park, and hike downstream, under the highway bridge....it takes approximately 15-20 min. The falls are more impressive than you'd imagine.

Nice easy trail, family friendly, beautiful views of the river. The hike down to the river is a good work out, but otherwise is fairly even, gentle inclines etc. a few mini trails will take you too the water itself, so you could plan to cool off in the water.

Fun place to walk out to. We went from the state park, NOT the directions here - as these literally have you parking in front of a nice house in a neighborhood ! Don’t recommend that as it’s in a resort. Go to the state park off the main highway. Park- and walk back up towards where you came in. Trailhead is on the left as you walk back to highway. Go under bridge and easy to find .

Beautiful, tougher than we imagined it would be, but an incredible workout with the steep descent + incline of the trail. I’d recommend wearing hiking boots as the trail gets pretty rocky at times.

Great views of the falls with multiple photo opportunities. Very short hike, more of a viewpoint than a hike. Only took us about 10 minutes to get to the falls.

Lovely short trail. Sunday afternoon, almost no one but us on the trail.

Beautiful views.

I walked the 2.2 miles of the RED section of this trail system in late January (see map in the photos for this trail).

I accessed the trail-head by driving through the Eagle Crest Resort residential area (there are several access points).

The loop I took immediately descends to the river's edge and then follows it downstream (north) for a bit more than a mile. I would have opted for the larger loop (WHITE route) but had already hiked up Cline Butte earlier in the morning and therefore only wanted to "get a feel' for this area. The trail is also used by trail runner but, on this sunny Saturday, it was very pleasant and moderately used.

There are a few spurs off the trail that provide access to the river. The trail itself is essentially flat along the river and on the top of the bluff (with a quick descent from the parking area and a longer ascent back to the bluff at the mid-point of the loop). The river portion leaves most signs of urban developments behind and provide close up views of not just the Deschutes river but also the cliffs on the eastern side.
Just before climbing back up and away from the river, the views open to the north and to the Cline Falls State park on the far bank.

The return leg follows a carefully manicured and paved path through the residential area and (initially) along the golf course. About halfway back on that leg, the open terrain showcases the Cline Butte area to the west.

Note: this particular loop does NOT provide access the the Cline Falls area which is located further north, across Hwy 126

Rocky terrain but loved this loop. had to turn around at the rock with cell, because my old dog could not get over the rock. Going again to finish the loop.

Went to take the hike but opted out as it begins in a residential area.

Great hike, beautiful views. Need to be in good shape!

Nice groomed trail after the first 1/2 mile or so. Beautiful views.

Great spring hike. Very interesting rock formations. The balsam root should be in full bloom now.

At the riverbank there is a small rock cliff that has a solar cell on top. We wondered if the spring run off had covered the trail. But no, just climb over the rock and you are on the trail again.

This map routes through a gated neighborhood and not directly to the trail
