Lake Simtustus Hiking Trail

This listing is provided by Visit Central Oregon

Offering numerous spectacular vistas of Lake Simtustus and the Cascade Mountains, this trail presents captivating views for all to enjoy. Whether starting from either end, hikers will encounter steep climbs of approximately 1/4-mile that ascend to the top of the ridgeline. Once atop the ridge, the trail levels out and meanders along an old railroad bed, providing a relatively flat terrain for exploration. However, it is important to note that there are still sections along the route that retain their steep and rocky nature, so caution is advised.
