Overview

This is a moderate out-and-back trail in Deschutes National Forest that leads to the Tam McArthur Rim. Although somewhat steep in places, this is a popular hike for families with children as it is not very long and the view of two lakes from the top is breathaking. In the peak of summer, parking can be difficult after 10 AM and the trail can be somewhat crowded. To get away from the madding crowd, hikers can continue along the trail for another 2 miles to reach Broken Hand. Bring along an inflatable boat for fun at the end of the hike, although mosquitoes can be fierce by the lake.

    Amazing Trail with some epic viewpoints along the way. I did an overnight backpacking trip with 4 others during the summer of 2021. We setup camp North of Broken Hand & then hiked out to a peak just SW of Broken Hand to watch an amazing sun settle down between the Sisters before disappearing all together. I awoke the next morning to an AMAZING Sunrise that I was able to view right through my open tent door. The hike in and out was amazing because of the beautiful views all around. Lots of wild flowers were in bloom and there was still sections covered in snow. Standing atop of the rim and looking down into the valley is quite a sight. This is a great overnight backpacking trail/location.
