Likely In-Season!
This popular trail leaves from the Green Lakes/Soda Creek trailhead and proceeds north up Falls Creek to Green Lakes and continues to the pass between the South Sister and Broken Top above Green Lakes. At the pass the Green Lake Trail #17 becomes the Green Lakes Trail #4070.

If hiking when snow remains, please stay on trail or snow, rather than creating new trails and damaging fragile vegetation. Mosquitoes are quite hungry early in the summer. This trail is one of the most popular in the Three Sisters Wilderness with little opportunity for solitude. Thus users are strongly encouraged to seek less visited trails, especially on weekends. Other Wilderness trails that offer lovely scenery and considerably more solitude include: Wickiup Plains Trail #12.1, Mirror Lakes Trail #20, Horse Lake Trail #2, Island Meadow Trail #3, Senoj Lake Trail #14.1, Corral Swamp Trail #8, and the Many Lakes Trail #15.

Dogs need to be on-leash in Three Sisters Wilderness on: Green Lakes, Moraine Lakes, South Sister, Soda Creek, Todd Lake and Crater Ditch Trails, from July 15 to September 15.

    Green Lakes via Broken Top
    There was a forest fire burning about 10-15 miles away between town of Sisters and Bend, OR. A USFS Ranger was stationed at the TH parking lot asking folks about there destinations so he could get an idea where hikers were headed and to warn them that if afternoon winds picked up and the fire started to move he would do a sweep of the area. This hike follows Fall Creek with the out and back turn around being Green Lake. It's an easy to follow trail with a very gradual elevation gain. You go over a saddle between South Sister and Broken Top peaks then drop down to Green Lake. We had lunch at the lake with about a dozen others hikers in the area. TH is about 30 miles from Bend, OR.
