This is a relatively easy hike to an alpine meadow with tremendous views of the Three Sisters. On clear days you should also have very good views of Mount Jefferson, Three-Fingered Jack, Mount Washington, Mount Bachelor, and Diamond Peak to the south.

For more information, visit the Cascadia Wildlands Project web site.

Directions

Take Highway 126 east from Eugene/Springfield for approximately 42 miles. After McKenzie Bridge, just past the McKenzie Bridge General Store, turn right onto Horse Creek Road and proceed 1.7 miles. Just beyond Horse Creek Campground, turn right onto FS Road 1993, which is mostly paved but has some gravel stretches. After approximately 8.5 miles, you will see the Horsepasture Trailhead on your right, along with a small turnout which will accommodate 3-4 cars.
