General Advisory
The summit road gate is opening at approximately 8:00 AM and closing at approximately 8:00 PM. This is subject to change without prior notice.

Symbols represent major park features & activities. Blue icons mean some/all are ADA accessible.

Come and explore an old cinder cone located just east of Bend. Hike up and around on one of three trails. The trails wind through stands of juniper and sage. All of the trails lead to the summit. Once at the top, get ready for a grand panoramic view of the high desert.


To the west at sunset, the glow of snowcapped Cascade mountains put on a spectacular show. Three Sisters, Mt. Jefferson, Black Butte and Mt. Hood are some of the highlights.
