Overview

This is a difficult out and back trail to Green Lakes in Deschutes National Forest and goes by Fall Creek Falls. This is one of the most popular and crowded hikes in the Three Sisters region, and on a fine summer day, the parking lot is full by 10 AM. Although there are no spectacular mountain views, the Green Lakes offer great vistas and numerous camping spots, although these tend to fill quickly by early weekend. Water is available along the entire hike. For a more secluded and longer (15 miles total) route to the Green Lakes, the Soda Creek Trail, from the same parking lot, is equally beautiful, and side trips are abundant.

This is a beautiful and easy 9.5 mile hike (RT) from the trailhead to Green Lake. Lots of pretty waterfalls along the way, and the trail climbs steadily on a gentle slope for a total elevation gain of about 1100 feet. At the lake, the views of the South Sister and Broken Top are amazing. Highly recommend this hike!
