This is a classic Sisters, Oregon trail, and an old unmaintained OHV/mountain biking route which was decommissioned for OHV use. Mostly rolling terrain through dense brush and open forest, views are limited but include glimpses of Mt Washington, North Sister, and Black Butte. Most of the trail is quite soft and covered with pine cones, pine needles, and occasional rocks. You will likely be alone out here. The trail winds it’s way clockwise toward Black Butte, then behind Garrison Butte, then past Cougar Rock, and makes its way up the biggest climb before descending to the finish.
Start at any number of intersections with forest roads. No water available on this route.
