The Matthieu Lakes Loop somehow ?ies under the radar of many hikers and runners. Encompassing all of the elements of what makes Central Oregon special, this balloon loop provides spectacular views of the Cascades, sweeping views of ancient lava ?elds, and pristine alpine lakes nestled among old-growth ponderosa pines. And if you time it just right, you might run into a smattering of northbound Paci?c Crest Trail (PCT) hikers who are willing to share their trail stories from all the rugged miles leading to Oregon.
