The third-, fourth-, and fifth-highest peaks in Oregon

We’ve spent the past several days in Bend. On Saturday we did about a 6-mile or so hike that included this view. The view actually was better later at a place called Peak View. We were the only people on the last couple miles of this loop trail.

Directions: Start at the Whychus Creek Trailhead parking area. The trail along the creek is lovely. Most people do it as an out and back. Hence, that trail can be rather crowded. Turn it into a loop, instead, by going to Whychus Creek Overlook (pictured above), then cross the highway at the Whychus Creek Overlook Parking area. From there take a mountain bike trail from point 34 to 29 on the map you’ll see at 34. 29 is Peak View. At 29 you can get off the mountain bike trail and onto a steep, but beautiful, trail down to the Whychus Creek Trailhead parking area. There are warnings about the steepness and difficultness of that section, but unless it’s icy you’ll be fine walking it. You wouldn’t want to be on a bike though.
