We’ve partnered with Roadtrippers to provide a great way to plan a trip around Oregon. So start planning your next road trip to here, there or pretty much anywhere in Oregon.

Begin the Dutton Creek Trail from the Discovery Point Trail, where Rim Drive meets the access road for Rim Village. From this point hike southwestward and away from the lake. This is the high point of the hike. The trail descends into the Castle Creek drainage from the trailhead.

The descent is steady along the creek. There are a few stream crossings in the first mile of the hike. The grade lessens approximately one and a half miles from the trailhead, where you’ll find a small tributary to Dutton Creek and a camping area. Beyond this the slow descent continues for another mile. The trail reaches the Pacific Crest Trail in a wet flat area two and a half miles from Rim Drive. At this trail junction is another backcountry camping area.
