The Cascades range is filled with iconic peaks, from Mount Hood to the north to Mount Thielsen to the south. In between, the Three Sisters, Mount Bachelor, and craggy Broken Top are the stars. It’s Broken Top that many Central Oregonians call their favorite. And for good reason: Broken Top’s ruggedly handsome peak, the accessible high alpine basins ?lled with streams and wild?owers, and the outstanding views of the surrounding area make it a must for outdoor lovers. A 12-mile loop provides a wondrous variety of scenery for trail runners who are willing to put in a few extra miles and feet of elevation.
