Overview
Metolius - Windigo Trail is a 157 mile one way hike. Located 61 miles southwest of Bend Oregon.


The Metolius-Windigo Trail was created by linking sections of existing trails, primarily to serve long-distance horse riders seeking a lower-elevation alternative to the Pacific Crest Trail along the Three Sisters section. While the PCT travels along the more rugged west side of the Cascades in this section, the Metolius-Windigo Trail sticks to the east side of the mountains. The trail branches from the PCT at Windigo Pass south of Crescent Lake and ends near Mt Jefferson Wilderness northwest of Sisters.

Due to its length, the trail passes through a wide variety of terrain and habitat types.
