Announcing a new event for The Bend Hiking Meetup Group!
What: Hike to Green lakes
When: Saturday, July 7, 7:30 AM
Where: Click the link below to find out!
Event Description: Join us for a hike to Green Lakes in the heart of the Cascades. This is a straightforward hike of 8 miles that takes us deep into the Sisters Wilderness. The hike is mainly through trees along the creek then emerges into the open by a spectacular lava flow. The reward is a beautiful lake surrounded by wildflower meadows and some of the best views of South Sister. Once we reach the lake we can split into two groups. Strong hikers can take the Broken Top path and return to the cars via Soda Creek. This adds another 3 miles.
We plan to leave early so we can hike in the cool of the morning and be ahead of the crowds!
Distance 8 miles.
Elevation gain 1100 feet.
A NW Forest pass is required for parking at the trailhead. Dogs are permitted on a leash.
Meet at the Starbucks on Century drive next to Safeway at 7:30 am.
