Hike or Snowshoe to Tumalo Mountain

Tumalo Peak Trailhead - Search Nearby - Added by James Dustin Parsons

Distance: 1.5 miles. Easy access with views that are unparalleled. See Mt. Bachelor from a unique perspective. Backcountry 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.

Broken Top Views!

Black butte and Pilot butte views are nothing compared to the views on top of Tumalo Mt. Insane views of the Sisters, Mt Bachelor, and most of all Broken Top mountain! A must do hike in the area!

Great Views Of Central Oregon

This fairly easy hike gives you one of the best vantages point to see all of Central Oregon. You can see Mt. Theilson, Mt. Bailey, Mt. Scott and obviously Bachelor to the South, Brokentop and the Three Sisters to the west and even Smith rock out to the north, not to mention Bend and all the surrounding areas to the east.

Great beginner ski tour

This was my first real BC ski tour and it was perfect for my beginner status. Chill slopes going down that will still give you a lot of fun.
