Hike or Snowshoe to Tumalo Mountain
Oregon › Tumalo Peak Trailhead

Distance: 1.5 milesEasy access with views that are unparalleledSee Mt. Bachelor from a unique perspectiveBackcountry options are available without any of the crowds
There is an official trail to the summit that begins just North of the Dutchman Flat Sno-Park parking area. The trail is signed and states 1.5 miles to the summit. When there is snow on the ground, you will not see the the official trail. You will need snowshoes or skins, but you just head straight up the mountain from the parking area, following any broken trail you can find.
You cannot get lost if you just keep going up. Within about 1 mile you will begin to break out of the trees, and here is where the views begin! The view looking back at Bachelor is insane from here. The view looking North at Broken Top and South Sister is great too.
You can continue on to the summit for 360 degree views and for great skiing down the east side of the mountain.
