Great trail with areas for hikers and bikers! Along the way, the highlights are Lava Falls, the Big Eddy rapids, and our favorite, Dylan Falls. Be sure to stop along the Big Eddy to watch for rafting tours to hit the rapids! You can access...More

Great hike! The terrain is not difficult to maneuver. Even in the snow the trail was not difficult to walk. The quiet and serene beauty of the Deschutes river is breath taking and needs to be taken in on the trail.
