Located south of Sisters and east of Broken Top, Tam McArthur Rim is a windswept ridge offering outstanding views of Three Sisters country. On this hike, you will also enjoy dramatic views of the Three Creek Basin and the Central Cascade peaks. The Tam McArthur Rim Trail begins adjacent to Three Creek Lake, which resides in a basin carved by ice age glaciers and is a popular summer recreation spot for those living and visiting Central Oregon. It’s stocked with rainbow and brook trout raised at the Wizard Falls Fish Hatchery northwest of Sisters. To the west of Three Creek Lake is Little Three Creek Lake, which can be reached via a 2.2-mile round-trip trail from Driftwood Campground.
