It is definitely a worthwhile trip to go see this beautiful park, only about a 40 minute drive from Sisters. A great hike any time of year along the Crooked River. It is generally warmer in the canyon, so it is a great hike in cooler weather. In the warm months plan to go in the morning as it get quite warm. Smith Rocks is a popular rock climbing area also, if you`re not into it, it is still fun to watch others who are.
The Sisters Community Trail System is a community wide, non-motorized trail system serving to connect downtown Sisters, local schools, neighborhoods and the regional trails within the Deschutes National Forest. The trail system is intended for recreation, commuting, and access in and around the greater Sisters area.
It`s a trail system for everyone, from the residents of Cloverdale and Tollgate to the citizens of Crossroads and Aspen Lakes. It`s a trail system that will make the Sisters area a better place to live, connecting us to our community and each other.
